David did a great post about his work environment a while back, and I was thinking of doing something similar. But it occurred to me that since we’re a mobile device blog, maybe I should do something about my mobile devices first and foremost. So, I grabbed my gadget bag—the bag I pack with all [...]

Update (Sep 15, 2015): When I first set out to write out this guide, I had no idea it would turn into one of our most evergreen articles. But even over a year later, we still see it pop up regularly in our top-visited statistics from day to day. Even well after Barnes & Noble has moved on to [...]

I’d been meaning to wipe my Nook HD and install Cyanogen Mod 11 for some time now, but the process intimidated me. Then Chris went and created a user friendly guide. A little more than a week ago, I got up the nerve to give it a try. It worked (after a couple of heart-in-the-throat moments), [...]

Hello Android; Goodbye iPod Touch and iPad

A couple of years ago, I wrote about how there was no good Android iPod Touch alternative. Then a couple of months ago, I discussed the possibility that the best iPod Touch alternative might be cheap Android smart phone. Shortly after that, I finally took the plunge into going Android all the way. [...]

Remember that 8” Nook HD refurb I got a couple of months ago? An eBay seller has a “limited quantity” of factory-refurbished units available at the amazing price of $70 each. (Just over 1,900 had been sold by the time I wrote this.) You can add a two-year SquareTrade warranty for another $17. [...]

Speaking of Barnes & Noble sales, Nate Hoffelder at The Digital Reader points out that B&N is running a more general sale on its Nook hardware, this week only. The Nook Simple Touch is $20 off, as I already mentioned, but so is the Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight, now $80 instead of $100. [...]

Refurbished Nook HD: First Impressions

A few days ago, Woot had a $90 special on refurbished 8 GB 7” Nook HD tablets. Since I accidentally cracked my Zeepad screen a few weeks ago and felt the need for a handy little 7” Android tablet, I figured why not. I ordered a case and screen protectors (from Amazon Prime!) and the whole thing [...]

How I Became a Freelancer (Give Me Back my Five Bucks) Over the past few months, I’ve gotten a lot of requests to talk about my freelancing – where my money is coming from, how I approach potential clients, and how I got started. I’ve talked about it before, but figured I could go a little [...]

 Barnes & Noble is extending its Father’s Day Nook HD sale. Just to recap in case you missed it, that means the Nook HD (7-inch model) is starting at $129, while the HD+ is starting at $149. I kinda wish I’d waited when I bought mine during the Mother’s Day sale. I thought [...]

I’d thought that Swype was a pretty good keyboard replacement, and I still think so. Unfortunately, it’s not compatible with the Nook HD, so someone recommended I look at SwiftKey. My first impression wasn’t positive. It’s not nearly as good at swipe entry as Swype, and [...]

Camping with the Nook HD

I’m back from a week-long camping trip (and remember, by “camping,” I mean hanging out in nature in a small travel trailer—with AC), and I decided I’d see if my new Nook HD could cut it as the sole tablet device. All right, the iPad did come along with me because I was in [...]

I’m still loving my Nook HD, and it has become my go-to device. I only use my Nexus 7 for app testing that requires either Jelly Bean or working with widgets. Since the HD goes with me everywhere, I needed a case, and I found a really inexpensive one on Amazon. The Poetic Slimline Portfolio [...]
