I am not sure if they will attract new customers for digital media solely based on Nook hardware. If they don't start branching out to more generic platform and I am not talking about the nook app but DRM free content, they will keep going down. They should have some say in how to sell content from the big four. But itís just a theory. Either they should be cheaper than others, or be better at customer service, or provide something that others don't. Just being big is not going to stop them from going down. Anyway, the ship is theirs to sink.
