Barnes and Noble Nook.

Why is this device for sale, and why do people like it?
I really, really, want to like this thing.

It’s slow, eink flicker is ridiculous, the dual display action is… confusing at best.

I took a look at the nook in one of the Barnes and Noble stores yesterday. Why bother putting a browser on it? An unplayable game of chess?
Really, folks, there is no way, NO WAY, this thing is worth $259.00. It feels like a kids toy tablet from the toy section of Walmart, and performs about the same.

I thought… hey, I have a lot of PDFs, the nook supports PDF, maybe that’d be a good thing to have.

Yea well.. PDF sucks, always has, always will, and I have zero confidence that the shitty nook would render the shitty PDF format in a pleasurable way.

    Let me note, the Nook Color is the complete antithesis of this rant.
