What a person does with their e-reader is really no one's business other than the person who owns said e-reader.
But then they come here asking for help because it's not properly registered.

Another issue is the fake Kobo registration failed twice when a new firmware version was no longer compatible. It could happen again. We won't know until it does.

I prefer to be registered and I know my device is good to go. I don't have to worry about something not working or having to start over because the new firmware isn't compatible with paranoia.

I have never once heard of anyone losing their job because of what they read on a registered Reader. Has anyone else heard of such a thing?

I'm pretty sure the album you had was Space Jazz (which I believe was also released as Battlefield Earth?).

Someone uploaded it to YouTube:


Hey, he did a Mission Earth soundtrack too! The man was a genius!

Another reason I don’t register is that I don’t see ads, I don’t find the benefits of registering needed, an I don’t want to get unwanted upgrades of the firmware.

Why not register? You can keep WiFi off. You aren't syncing because you've not registered. So being registered with WiFi off will prevent you unwanted firmware but you'd have full access to the all of the features that do not require WiFi.
