My personal 2 annoyances

I really like my reader a lot. It perfectly fits my needs except for 2 annoyances.

1. The reader has an installer partition which I would like to get rid off. I can see that Sony saves on installation disks if they put the installer on the reader, but why does this have to be on an extra partition which I cannot easily merge to the main memory?
I would rather have those extra couple of MB for putting books. I also hate that the installer partition pops up as an extra drive-letter on my pc.

2. PDF zooming is one of the main reasons I bought the reader for. As far as zooming goes, I just love the function. I'm ok that the zoom goes back to one page view when turning a page, but I hate that once you zoom, the page goes to the center of the page. To get an overview over the page you're turning to, I think the one page view on page turns is a viable option. But once you zoom in, how likely is it, that the content you want to read is dead center on the page.

So I wish I could just merge the installer partition with the main memory and have the default zoom behaviour as settings. So to say I would love to see that I can set whether or not the zoom level stays the same when I turn a page for one. The other is, I would either want to set that my page starts e.g. left upper corner/right upper/...lower corner, etc. when I zoom in, or that when I do the first zoom on a page, that I first specify where I want to zoom in on and then how much I want to zoom.

Ok, so this is what I really dislike about my reader.
And I hope that either Sony reads the forum to pick up some feedback so they can improve their gadgets or that the FW gets optimized by private persons to get similar stuff going like PRS+ on the 505.
