    I got the app. TV Show Streams... did the freebie first and worked great and then bought the app.. LOADS of TV shows to watch when ever you get the hankering..

    I know a lot of you all have been using TuneIn but just tried it was pleasantly surprised at how MUCH it provides.. got to listen to a radio station in the Antarctic ? who knew they even had one... Then flipped to Virgin Islands for some real Island music.... What was interesting is no matter where I went they were pretty much playing American Music... GUESS I never realized it was EVERYWHERE...


    then had some fun with Old Time Radio Player.. lots of funny old radio shows... not for everyone but I enjoyed them for a change .. also some Radio DRAMA's.. were even funny...

    Anyone else fine any new and FUN apps ???? I just love to try them out for the heck of it..

    Nice :)
    That is good info that I appreciate. And I agree that TuneIn Radio is fantastic...certainly not the world's only streaming radio player, but the way it works and is set up is top notch.

    Thanks for the info. On SD or eMMC? I got my SDHC 8G class card today. Getting braver, just can't decide whether to upgrade and reroot w/ manual nooter and run CM7 off SD or stay where i am and runCM7 off SD. I don't want to loose the NC reader. Is it easy as it sounds to switch btwn the 2 when running off SD?

    CLS, I was thinking as well of a bootable CM7 but you wouldn't have the same speed as when you flash the rom internally when you surf , so I gave up the idea. Now they fixed the manual nooter for stock 1.2.0 I'll try that, Spider told me everything seems to work fine, Stock 1.2.0 is faster than 1.1 .0 and has flash and wifi connection has improved and I think even the battery has a longer life so I believe once I root it I might not feel the need to flash CM7

    Planning to try Google Sky Map on the Nook tonight, saw it on an in-laws phone... it was really nice.
