Hack Barnes & Noble’s Nook app on to Amazon’s Kindle Fire.

There is always the option they will fix this problem (for them). Since there is no expansion, it really isn’t worth hacking. It’s like most things these days, something to generate service revenue. For $200 I would rather get the NookColor, or spend $50 more for the Nook Tablet.

I can’t see any reason to buy the fire at all!
