Nook Color & Nook 2 Android

I really like our iPad. The three of us seem to share it pretty well, but I was already thinking we could really be a two or three tablet family. My uncle is trying out a Nook Color, the Barnes & Noble ebook reader along with a little hack to run the Android OS via a bootable microSD card from Nook 2 Android.

You can pick up a new Nook Color for $250. I got a refurb on for $180. You can then order the a Nook 2 Android 8 GB card for $35. So on the cheap side, you can get an Android tablet for $215 plus shipping.

I'm excited about this as I really wanted a tablet and I think this will be a great device. I want it to be my portable documentation repository and library. Dropbox plus some PDFs. YouVersion for multiple versions of the Bible. Add Google Reader for my RSS feeds and I am all set!

Speaking of Macs

I was told by a co-worker at a sister company that Macs are impervious to viruses. Well, lah de dah!

His statement makes this all the more fun... Hacking Apple Laptop Batteries. Forget borking the software, let's get the hardware.

(After seeing this post, I hope to incorporate the phrase "lah de dah" into all of my posts.)
