Day 2 Issues
I got my nook yesterday, charged it and started playing with it as soon as I figured out how to open the overly complicated package. I've read enough of the other posts to know to tolerate some sluggishness but this morning it was misbehaving badly.
I couldn’t get into settings, it would just show a blank eink screen and eventually the lcd would dim without displaying anything related to the settings options. Shop didn't work, it displayed the last information I had searched for last night, search didn't work. I also noticed that the wireless signal icon wasn't there. As I started writing this post I attempted to turn it off and it didn't turn off so I pressed it again (holding it for a few seconds) and then it reset/rebooted itself.
Now that it rebooted, the wireless signal icon is back and I can get to settings so maybe it is back to "normal", though I’m anxious for a new "normal" in a firmware upgrade that takes care of some of these 1.0 problems.

I've watched a few "unpacking the Nook" videos and just unpacking is quite a feat! lol Also it does seems agonizingly slow!

Had a hard crash this AM for no apparent reason, reset to factory settings including the erasure of the handful of ePubs, MP3's and images I had put into the Screensaver/Wallpaper folders the day before.
Not a huge deal, just reloaded my stuff, it did automatically re-download one free eBook I had obtained from BN.com and resynced it's library (archived 2 of the free books that came pre-loaded) automatically. Seems to be working well right now, reading as we speak.
Here's hoping for the firmware update to hit soon.
