Welcome candocaptain,

The Xoom tablets do multi-task and multi-thread applications. However, the application must be written to use multi-tasking or placing it in background will pause the application. With the stock Google browser, the tabs will multi-task within the browser (different sites open an running on each), however, if you place the browser in background and go to the desktop it will pause. The Music app and Pandora apps both DO support multi-tasking and as such, they continue to play in the background, even if the Xoom is in sleep mode (screen off). Unfortunately, the YouTube app does not support multi-tasking.
