On my Asus Transformer Prime, which runs 4.1 and DOES have a physical Menu button (at least, when it's docked into the keyboard), pressing the menu key does nothing in Einstein.

It runs amazingly well, though. (It ought to, on a quad-core Tegra!) There's no sound, and opening the Extras drawer takes a bit, but the handwriting recognition is perfectly usable now.

For the moment, at least on my device I can go into the device's settings, then Apps, then Running, and kill Einstein's Service from there. A workaround, at least.
