    Awesome Drop sounds awesome! ;) Is there a filesize limit? I have to try it!

    RE: shortcuts, you might want to explore Desktop Visualizer, which is not only (a) another route to installing shortcuts on the desktop, but also (b) it offers the option of setting how large you want the desktop icon to be, and more importantly, if you want to use an image file as the icon. Some Android users have exploited it to create really unusual and interesting homescreens:

    [Layout] - Android Phone 7 (as seen on xda-forums, now fits D1!) - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum

    My first hunch was "iPad" but I saw that was ruled out. I guess I'd like to have a better idea what the granddaughter's level of physical skill is like. Having taught a few college students with cerebral palsy, I would probably lean toward something more like a "toy" media player that can be dropped, and has large buttons that are easy to push. But maybe her symptoms are mild, and she can use her hands fairly well.

    More details please!

    Yep, but it requires modifying the wpa_supplicant file: NookColor adhoc wifi access - nookDevs. Some lucky folks have phones (like the Evo) that automatically broadcast in infrastructure mode. Imagine that... ;)

    Thanks rico2001. I am loving this device and can't believe it costs half the price of comparable tablets.

    Well, here is a screenshot of my NC *Rooted via the MicroSD in my Samsung Impression (non-smartphone) (Yes, apparently, I am THAT crazy)

    Do I get my name on the owners list now?
