comment How do I prevent a system update from occurring?
This gets me where I wanted to go in that I could download and save the APK for Flash Player that I could sideload (Adobe_Flash_Player_11.1.115.12.apk). This requires "unknown sources", which is less optimal than having the installer in Google Play, but better than trying to keep 130 kids from updating their devices. From a survey of the curriculum, it seems to be working under 4.1.1. Thanks for the pointer.

comment How do I prevent a system update from occurring?
I'm comfortable doing the whole root routine given that I work for Motorola and I write apps, but I really don't want to do this 150 times. The kids might get to this point, but the most likely candidate sleeps down the hall from me. I can keep him in line. ;-) Thanks for the ideas. I'll give them a try.

comment Apps I never installed appear in web store under “Other apps in my library”
None of these are preloads. I know this, because all the preloads for all of our phones go through one of my peers. The thing that bugs me is it's in that list of 240, but not in my play store history.

comment Who are responsible for pushing out the OTA updates?
The carriers don't just have a say. The carriers are often the gatekeeper for the public release. The big carriers all have their own labs that test the builds, often for weeks at a time, before they allow the OTA to go out.

comment Good, free, syncable to-do/task list with priorities and categories
I've used Astrid, producteev, RTM, and others. The Team Tasks app is definitely the best front-end to the Google Tasks back-end. The UI is nice and the developers respond to issues pretty quickly on G+. It syncs to both my work gApps account and my personal Google account. The notifications work, but not overly intrusive. The one drawback I've found is the inability to schedule recurring tasks (e.g. "send status report to director every Tuesday") but that's a fault of the back-end.

comment Want to disable album art in music player
Looks like the Apollo player is OSS. I've forked the build and I'll see about adding a "no album art" feature.
