The "order a new one" that the Kobo customer service wrote in the mail (or chat, or whatever) probably is just something she* typed without knowing it means something completely different to you

I think it's just: store, buy product, product breaks, back to store, exchange for new product... And otherwise just get me on the phone, I'll give them a mouth full


*She?? Why did I assume a she?

The only use I've found for using the kepub.epub extension is it's ability to handle languages that are not written left to right, top to bottom. On standard epub 2 books, I really don't find the pages per chapter display to be a compelling reason.

That plus epub 3 support are the main reasons I see to use it. I like the extra reading stats but the pages per chapter annoys me too much.

Me too and me too. Can't you use your extraordinary influence with all the Kobo people that love you to get them to make the way the pages show customisable?

Influence, me? If I thought I had any, I'd be pushing at my "favourite" bugs.

Have you tried using your wand? It's the people ignorant of their powers that have the most influence of course...

in fairness, the crappy nonsense was online (on the WHSmith website): real humans seem (happily) much more reasonable

Time to go back to your to-be-read pile Just in time for the weekend, a three-day one to boot.

I hope you'll like the white Mini. I chose this colour in part because the logo is less obvious in grey on white, and I like it very much (so not too appliance-y with a red snapback).
