Hmm with a regular newton, if you hold the pen down on the upper left
about 1/3rd of the screen down it will not activate packages (they will
be frozen, except for what is in ROM).  Not sure if that applies to
Einstein or not.  Seems like it should be if it is a emulator?

B&N Nook eh?  I have one as well.  Might try it on that.  Been thinking
about it for a while, just haven't got around to it yet.  Is there
anyway to export (or import) the data?  That is the only deal breaker
for me at this point.  Last I knew there wasn't, which is why I haven't
really dove into Einstein.
