One quick way is to clear the email app data. It will reset the email app back to default. You will lose all email stored locally. You can do this under Settings\Applications.

I did not know that. Quite the bummer. Guess people use them often enough that their DRM is renewed, but you're right that would certainly preclude consideration. Strange that Amazon can get away without mentioning it in specs.

Even worse on a non Amazon tablet you have to have the app store installed and be logged in to your account to use the apps.

I can use my apps fine without being connected to the net on my Android devices.

Is this some kind of American thing?

Ahh, now I get it, if you want to use Amazon's app store apps on an Android device you need to be connected?
Yes, this is uniquely American. You guys can be so incredibly bureaucratic at times.

You can also change it to never poll. So that it only does it if you specifically go to the mail app and download.

If you want to actually access the data (eg, watch a movie) while it's on an attached thumb drive, it's a major pain because of the slow USB speeds, the thumb drive heating up (haven't met one over a gig that didn't since I can't afford the upper end , and the thumb drive accidentally getting hit and wrecking the socket when you shift your grip or put the device down incautiously.

I load movies and videos onto the SD card of my Nook Tablet and let the kiddies watch it when we go on a long car trip. On the way back I can pop in another card with different movies.

How many times have you had to factory reset your Kindle, Nook, Kobo e-ink device?

e-ink won't play my movies. That's the point of getting a "reader" with a color screen.

I suspect that a large fraction of us have both an eInk device for reading, and an LCD device for movies, etc. I certainly do.

The Google Play Store does the same, but seems to manage it better. I don't know if it is a one off on Google when you install the app or if it is a periodic check like Amazon, but there is some behind the scenes validation going on for paid apps on the Play Store as well.

Not just a bad internet connection?
I guess you can hand out APK files to people, maybe they are checking for that?
When you've paid and know you're legit it becomes a nuisance, kind of like flying domestic in the US.

On the Kobo Touch, almost weekly 'til the 1.9.14 release. And my brother's had to factory reset his Android tab (a Lenovo IdeaPad or whatever their 1GHz single-core 7" tab is called) 3 times since he got it back in April or May and restoring data's just as bad on that, especially if you have a data cap.
