Talking Solution to the SD Card Problem?

I, like many others, have been looking for solutions to expand storage on the Nexus 7. Chainfire's StickMount works well with USB keys, so I thought I would try it with something more oldschool:


Also seen running Keyboard,Mouse and USB flash drive through powered hub. Ultima is being run through Dosbox straight from the floppy.

Who needs a Transformer anyway?

OOh I know. Next you should tape it to the inside of a giant cardboard box (with cutouts for screen and floppy), lock it to terminal emulator, and you have an "old-computer" emulator

It's rooted, it's Paul from MoDaCo's MCR but any rooted rom should work.

Unfortunately, we threw out all our zip drives and disks a while back. It was mentioned as an option though.
Also, we did try a usb CD-ROM drive, but that wasn't playing ball (I would guess it does not register as a mass storage device at all)

Glad people like it. Despite the fun aspect, the whole setup (minus floppy) really is a pretty usable netbook/nettop level experience.

Would love to see a pogo pin dock so I could keep it charged, it is currently balancing on the front of a Dilbert calendar!
