    No, I don't think Apple has something to do with it. I think android is being targeted because it's so easy to post an app. There's a price to be paid for being an open platform.

    I think the xoom is safe from this exploit. It is said to only affect android versions 2.2.2 and below. Since xoom was built off of the lastest android, all the holes should be patched.

    Yeah it only affects froyo devices and below but you never know. I think as the mobile devices gain more and more popularity, people will start targeting them more often. Its a scary world we live in.
