H4ck an Ebook Reader

The OLITA Technology Lending Library has a challenge.  We want to see what creative and interesting things you can do to hack an ebook reader.  We have a collection of 17 Sony eBook Readers and we want to see what creative alternate use you can put them to. We send you one and in 3 months tell us what you did with it by writing an Appetizer on the OLITA blog.  Winner gets bragging rights.

Interested?

The ebook reader is the Sony PRS-350PC

Check out this blog post to see how someone loaded a custom firmware on this device.

Or how about this hack to uncover the underlying Android operating system powering the device.

Want one?  

Please tell us where to send it and it is all yours.

    Do we get to keep the device (“all yours”) or do we have to send it back?

    Thanks!

      Sorry. You do get to keep the ebook reader. The slip of paper inside of the box was a leftover from the lending library initiative. Feel free to ignore that.
