    Does anyone else find it easier to install apps from the market instead of the tablet directly?

    Sometimes it just stops when I'm installing from the tablet.

    Thanks.

    Yes. I vastly prefer market install.

    But the stopping issue is because of a crazy "Deadly Embrace" issue in Honeycomb.

    It typically happens to me when I'm UPGRADING, as opposed to new items.
    Seems to happen with this sequence of events..

    1. Enter Market app on tablet.
    2. Tap My Apps,
    3. See and upgrade waiting.
    4. Tap See details on that waiting upgrade,
    5. Then, from the details page, I tap Upgrade. Almost always locks.

    If from Details, I tap the back button, and then use the upgrade button on that page it never seems to fail.

    I haven't noticed this on new installs. But I still prefer doing those from the market as well. Its just so freakin cool.
