Ha! After years of marrige (and twin girls), I am immune to pink! That wouldn't work on me!

I can also shop for femine products without debilitating loss of manhood as well.

I wasn't so into pink until I had a little boy. Then I realized that my house was filling up with hockey paraphernalia, I was tripping over trains, and I was suddenly outnumbered. If this current pregnancy is a boy, I fear my husband will never become immune to pink (nor will he shop for feminine products).

I'm still thrilled with my choice of colour!

Maybe handling your pink Vox will desensitize him, and before you know it he'll be cooking dinner, doing laundry, and grocery shopping. Start gently - maybe laying the Vox on his chest for a moment while he naps on the sofa. Then browse some of his favourite websites. Nonchalantly hand him the Vox while saying "Honey, have you seen this?". Later, download a few games and challenge him to an "Angry Bird" off - winner gets [put suggestive comment here].

Once he realizes pink will not emasculate him, the rest is easy.

He has an iPad and a Kindle.

I shouldn't complain. He calls himself "Super Mom" often - he makes dinner every night, gets the boy up and fed and dressed in the morning, and does his own laundry. He's a great Dad and a great catch...

And because he doesn't like Pink my Vox is all mine!

And the first one to sell out at Chapters for $199 is... Hot pink!

My wife has had mine most of the week so I may need to buy another one unless I'm tempted by the Acer Iconia instead though at $299 it is close to double the $179 price which ends tomorrow on the Vox.

How is the Kobo android app? I much prefer the Vox version to the Blackberry and Windows reader apps.
