Someone at last week’s spring meeting about eBooks asked a question regarding the hackability of these devices. The context was from within the world of circulating such devices to the public and concerns about the devices being returned in a hacked state. Last week I answered by stating that none of them have been hacked that I was aware of.
This week I’d have to answer differently as it seems that the Alex E-Reader has been rooted. I’m sorry to say that this might be a reason for a library not to circulate Android-based devices.
