    Is 800x600 enough for an 8" eReader?

    Bricked tablet, unknown model

    Is that a 10" screen? That tablet bears striking resemblance to my Wonder Media WM8650. The back, camera location, and ports are almost exactly the same on my tablet. I'd go ask in the Wonder Media forum.

    Connecting a tablet to my MacBook

    I don't have a 2.2 tablet handy, but some require that you enble USB mode deliberately. Plug it in again to your Macbook. Go to the home screen and pull the menu bar from the top of the screen. Do you see an option that mentions USB? Click it.

    Anyone interested in hacking the Kyobo eReader (runs Android 2.3)?

    A little over a month ago Qualcomm and Kyobo (SK bookstore chain) released the first device with a Mirasol screen. I have one and it's pretty crappy. About a week ago Kyobo released a firmware update. It's about 170MB in size, and it looks like it's a complete update. Is anyone interested in...
