Comment: The direction to Nook should have taken. (Score 2) 52

The eInk Nook was able to be rooted into a full fledged android tablet. The version of android was rather old which was unfortunate, but otherwise it was a nice device. Reading GMail, looking at RSS feeds, viewing twitter were all pretty good on an eInk screen. It would have been nice to see a company produce a device that did this.

You want us to be blind to political motivations? The GOP cares not a wit about environmental protection. Time and time again the GOP has shown this to be the case. It's entirely appropriate to ask cuo bono? This is so transparently a loophole. Anytime there is a proposed regulation and the underlying science cannot be reproduced by the Heartland Foundation then that will tie the EPA's hands. Of course the Heartland Foundation would give a good faith effort to reproduce the results, right?

Btw, this is my first experience with the beta. If this stays, I go.

I also don't see why this is on Slashdot. Customs official opens a bag and doesn't notice that these reed looking things are flutes, promptly destroys the reeds. Guy should have kept these with him if he valued them so much. Shit happens. Not sure why this particular shit happening made it on Slashdot.
