Happy Friday! Last week in my newsletter I asked for some puppy
rearing advice and all I have to say is, WOW! I received more than
100 member e-mails from puppy tips to notes of congratulations. I'm
only halfway through them, but the weekend is here and I'll be going
through them all. A sincere thank you to all who took the time out
to e-mail me--I really appreciate the support! Now let's move on to
this week's topic from member, Mark, who asked us if he should root
his e-book reader.
Well folks, given the lack of responses in this week's topic, "E-book
reader: To root or not to root?", I can see that the topic of rooting
(see Wikipedia definition of rooting) an e-book reader hasn't quite
drawn much interest, or we simply just don't have enough
members with this experience, but no worries. If it's the latter, we
are all here to learn from one another and if this is the first time
you've heard about rooting, well then it's time to learn about
Mark, we have a few answers for you from our members in regard to
your inquiry. But I'd like to ask our members who are seasoned
rooting experts to come join the conversation and help
us understand in detail the risks, difficulties, and above
all, the compelling reason(s) to root? These answers will help our
members to determine if this new adventure is something
they want to take on or not. Thank you all for your help. Have a great
Q: E-book reader: To root or not to root?My wife has an e-book reader (Pandigital Novel) and I have been seeing
a lot of information about rooting it to an unlocked Android-enabled tablet.
A friend has a Barnes & Noble Nook and we have come to the same
question: what are the advantages and disadvantages of rooting? Are there
any risks and does it void the manufacturer warranty? Both the Novel
and the Nook have a fairly good set of native apps. Are there any
Android apps that would compel me to root? Thanks for your insight.
Q: What should I do: upgrade my computer or buy a new one?
Hi everyone, could you please give me some advice. My main computer
(running Windows XP) is six years old, and I'm pondering whether to
get a new one or just upgrade my existing one. In your opinion, at
what point in time would upgrading hardware components on an older
machine be non-beneficial in terms of cost and updated technology. If
I were to upgrade my current PC, what are the most critical components
to upgrade in order for me to make a substantial improvement to the
overall performance of the system and ensure its longevity. If I were
to get a new system, what should I be looking for? I haven't looked into
a new PC in a long time. Please advise me on this situation. Thanks.
