More apps on an ereader

Here's a tip to run Android apps on a Nook Simple Touch e-ink reader (no backlight). Requires a bit of geek work, but a very good idea. Though it can't run all Android apps by far, some of those it can makes it much more versatile for reading RSS feeds and such. The lack of those things is one of the bigger limits of ereaders (as opposed to tablets). In fact I think it's silly that nobody has made an ereader which does all that stuff. Perhaps they are all afraid of cannibalising their ebook sales?
