The Nooks web broswer works astonishingly well. I was shocked. Have some difficulties with certain flash aplications, but B&N's recent software update fixed more than a few issues. Don't know how to update, or too troublesome, go into a B&N and they will do it for you. I check my Yahoo web mail daily with the Nook.
