Nook Torn Open, Hacked, Rooted

,----[ Quote ]
| Before you tut, toss your head and mutter 
| âso what?â like some petulant teenager, 
| think about the uses. The Nook is now a 
| computer running a full Android operating 
| system, with a built-in, free cellular 
| connection to the internet. It also has a 
| battery that lasts days, not hours. Now are 
| you getting excited? This could turn into 
| the Roomba of e-readers, only it wonât 
| suck.

| As with any other Linux-based device, it 
| didnât take very long for the Barnes & 
| Noble nook ebook reader to be rooted by 
| some clever users. In fact itâs not much of 
| a surprise that the people behind something 
| called NookDevs.com were able to gain 
| access to the deviceâs administrative 
| controls.

Android May Power New Barnes & Noble E-Reader

,----[ Quote ]
| Reports indicate that another new e-
| reader is on the way, this time from 
| Barnes & Noble.  The interesting thing - 
| or at least the interesting thing that 
| makes this development connect to the 
| search industry - is that Barnes & 
| Noble's e-reader will supposedly use 
| Android as its operating system.
