So I’m going to try solving the power adaptor issue with my tablet (because I like my tablet but the 30 pin connector on the power cable is propritary unto itself (thanks barns and noble) and the wires seem to by design not have any sort of survivability (am tempted to crack one of the cheapo aftermarket ones open and inject it full of epoxy to help with that since i need epoxy anyway to fixe my laptop’s hinge)and hey I’d like a keyboard for the thing.
It’s a seven inch tablet (Nook HD) and so I’d like a keyboard that would go with it. Sure barns and noble made an official keyboard that I’m sure would owrk, but it’s not really for sale without going to ebay, it’s overpriced I fear even without that, and… well… I’d like something that doubles as a stand without going ‘here is this funky cardboard thing. Use That.’
On the other hand also considered turning my laptop into a tablet because of the hinge issue but I’d also need a mini-pci-e gyroscope/tilt sensor and a way to make the screen a touch screen PLUS a way to get a power switch going since the only power switch on this thing is on the keyboard itself, but that’s a discussion for another time and revolving around the fact even though it’s old and wearing down, it’s MINE and I do not like throwing these things away if there’s any chance at recycling it into something.
On the OTHER hand… I do plan on picking up a raspberry pi w whenever those things stop being scarcer than an empathetic sociopath, and that thing has built in blutooth (why the w instead of the 3? …Reasons.)
