    I am looking for an app that will be able to transfer files from mac to xoom and - here's the catch! - will be able to initiate the transfer from the tablet, i.e. access the mac from the xoom, and copy/paste files from mac to xoom. Any suggestions?
    All I was able to find are apps that recognize the tablet from the mac but not vice versa.

    Try EStrongs File Explorer. Its free and easy to use. I am not an Apple expert but based of genertal networking principles all you should need to access the Apple machine is its IP address. You just go tthe LAN tab in ES, press the menu button and 'add new' followed by either 'Server' or 'Scan'. If 'Scan' does not reveal the machine you are looking for add the Server manually entering its IP address. Provided you set access permissions on both your Mac and the Wifi router correctly you should be able to see and access the files on the Mac. Then just copy & paste to your desired destination folder on the Xoom.
