The audio continues to play over wifi even when the kindle is in screensaver mode, if the USB cable is plugged in to supply power (and the kindle is configured to keep wifi up like it does on the k3).
i was looking for something less along the lines of commands and more like a menu extension. also, what do you call for the player (what command)? is this like piping an audio stream straight to the experimental player?
also, i have an idea that i havent seen in the forum: adding google to the main menu search possibilities. its already in the web search but not in the home search.
also also, was there a terminal emulator i missed?
