no its not. There will always be a certain kind of geek that will do this sort of thing, but locking it down is the right way to do it for the 99.9%. I would *never* buy an e-reader that had a full android OS.

Yeah, I agree. Make it hackable for people who know what they're doing, but lock it down enough so that you keep the loaded gun out of reach just far enough so that Joe Sixpack doesn't hurt himself.
