You Nook owners just aren't ever satisfied, are you? First, reading wasn't enough so you went ahead and rooted to get your Angry Birds on. That was all fine and well, until that Froyo hack came along and (maybe?) nuked your device. If your confidence hasn't yet been shattered, strap on your seatbelt for the latest chapter in the life of the Nook Color after e-reading. Apparently user occip over at the always-hacking xda-developers found a way to enable the currently dormant Bluetooth radio tucked away in some undisclosed cranny of B&N's colorful Nook. This one's not for the faint of heart just yet -- you have to be on Froyo already, and that's a feat in and of itself. Still, it paves the way for things like Bluetooth GPS dongles as well as headsets for apps like Skype. We'll see what happens when B&N releases 2.2 officially, which should be pretty much any day now...
