I'm sooo confused. Imagine , I actually bought a eReader to just read books . How foolish of me . I even was niave enough to think that if I was getting close to the end of the book I was reading I would download a (brace yourselves for this idea) second book to start when I finished the current one. If I wanted to read newspapers or magazines instantly I would spent a little more and get a netbook or just use the computer I currently have at home or the office and then download from that ( again with the bizarre ideas) . On top of everything I bought the Kobo judging it as the machine I was buying and not what it should be or will be in 6 months or a year . If I wanted something with all the bells and whistle s of a computer I'll just use a computer . Technology changes at an exponential rate and is something that a consumer has to accept . I think there's a point in there soewhere.
