Nice info thanks for the link. If I read it correctly he installed a linux partition to run calibre to fetch his daily news. Very creative, but not an Android port.

Personally once I had an Android tablet I had access to easier methods of fetching my local and national news or blogs/web sites of interest, Google reader being one example, Flipboard being another. Because of this ease of access I no longer use calibre's fetch news feature.

Good Reading!
