    Default Unique Use for Wireless

    So I was sitting in the office today, bored, thinking about reading and not being able to and I came up with with I think is a unique use for the wireless: syncing with Dropbox.

    I've got two laptops, one for work and one for personal use, and I keep my Calibre library on Dropbox so I can access the same library on both computers. Why couldn't it be possible for an eReader to sync with Dropbox, check the eBooks you want on your Nook then have them download?

    Regards,
    Michael

    This works with my iPod Touch, and it is really handy. I would love it if my Nook Color would allow this also!

    The Dropbox android app works on a rooted nook.

    That make me give some serious thought to rooting. Dropbox on the NC would be cool!

    If memory serves the Dropbox android app can't run all the time in the background, so it can't keep your library on the nook up to date automatically.

    At this point it would still require a rooted nook, but I'd like to see an android app companion to Calibre. Something that would get a list of available books from your Calibre library (using the content server), let you download them to the right directory, and also keep track of which one's you already downloaded.
