The coverage. They don't do it justice.

Before I even came across the nook it seemed as if the device I had my eye on day after day keeps looking big for some reason, by "big", I mean slightly taller then a liter of CRYSTAL CLEAR water beverage. The odd camera angles are no help, of course.

Other issues with snapshots are that they made the lower touch screen look like it had no protective overlay whatsoever, which irked me to no end.

But perhaps it would be the horrid appearences it had on TV (Read: Ellen Degeneres)

If you can't even rain check your table for proper set up before a big Public Broadcast, maybe you shouldn't present more hype-heavy devices in the future.

I think they displayed it upside down. Probably her production assistants didn't really know anything about it.

THe iphone is a form of individualist fate, now you cant watch a review of a touchscreen device without there being iphone superiority bias.
