Roncri,

It's not as bad as that, but Sebastiano's question seemed - to me - to ask for far more information than I felt comfortable releasing under our NDA with Bookeen. I could be wrong about what he was asking.

Come on guys...don't get too worked up about this. I think you had a bit of a misunderstanding there and you should not let that turn into anything nasty.

I think delphidb96 is under a lot of pressure right now, since he's "officially" doing a review and everybody is bombarding him with questions. Bookeen is not giving him all that much information (companies like to do that...^^) and there is also surely stuff he's not supposed to talk about...
Still, I think the reaction to Sebastiano's questions was a bit harsh...but so were the "that's what you get for asking questions" posts later on.

Maybe we need a new meditation thread? After a visit there you can all have a round of apologies, handshakes all round and then back on topic and forget the whole deal?

I think the culprit here (if there is one) is bookeen because they are quite obviously not willing to keep delphidb96 up to date on firmware (he's still using the very first version they supplied him with even though they obviously have at least one newer version) and I don't see any reason to bug delphidb96 about that since he's obviously already quite annoyed about that himself...
Give the guy a break, it will all start coming together sooner or later I guess...

Asking questions is good. After all, there's no such thing as a stupid question.

It's just that we are caught between making sure that we give a review based upon the most current firmware update and trying to not release information that is still covered by our NDA agreements. Result? Stress. Stress causes me to snap at people who ask difficult (unbeknownst to them) questions. You happened to be one of those people. Sorry.

I think we're all eagerly anticipating your review and it's easy to forget when we express it that it can also feel like pressure for you. Plus you're in the unfortunate position of having to answer for something that is beyond your control.
