Author Interview

What is the best way to approach an author for an interview? I'm assuming I go through the publisher, although this author has published just one book. Since I'm a student/independent journalist, I'm wondering whether my email is likely to be forwarded along to the author. My feeling is the author may be interested, but since it's a student piece it's unlikely to sell more books. Should I worry about catering to the publisher in any way in my correspondence -- and if so, how? T

Can I make my own Android tablet?

OK, so I have a lovely screen on my HTC Desire which caters to all my media needs (Spotify, Radio Paradise, iPlayer). What I would like is a large version of it, on the kitchen wall, which permanantly hooks up to my bluetooth speakers. So when cooking, I would merely touch the wall to get music, video, stream bbc things etc. Cool idea no? So can anyone recommend a cheap touchscreen PC for that purpose (preferably at least a 7" screen), and how hard is it to install android on one? [more inside]
