I've been using my shiny new NOOKColor (that I paid for) for things like viewing PDFs or websites on my workbench. After a day of frustration trying to get it to stay propped against some random object while viewing instructions on how to make some MakerBot bits...
... I printed up a useful device.
If you can't figure out how to use these after you've printed them you probably shouldn't be allowed unsupervised access to anything other than Crayons(tm) and butcher paper.
