Kindle Hack Prescience

Yesterday's post foresaw the wonderful things that could happen if someone did some "special research" on the Kindle. Well, today's news (Ars Technica) tells of a hacker who has indeed gained access to the K2's Linux essence via the USB port. The original Kindle was hacked way back in 2007.

I don't expect to do this myself any time soon, but it is fun to watch another digital barrier fall.
