Here's a link to their video about the Kobo Mini 2:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hxmFHKQkiy0

He makes it sound like a wild guess that's valid because he's "the undisputed king of ereaders", and that really is a quote from the video.

Actually that's probably true. He can claim to be the undisputed king because he's the only one vain enough to claim that title.

The King told me via facebook chat that he knows I am a poster here. Creeped me out. My real name is not used anywhere here. So how would he know? Don't like being internet stalked by a stranger. I still like their website I am just a little freaked out on this

Probably. I read the article on the gold oasis and I noticed some wording matched another article a little. I still like their website. Easier to find the info

It sounds like that your iBooks somehow became your default app for pdfs. Not sure how to change that in iOS though.

Not soon, apparently.
Going on six months and this is what searching for "ebook" pops up:

https://www.walmart.com/search/?query=ebook&cat_id=0

Fancy an RCA Voyager?

Searching for "ebook reader" returns a listing headed by... Kindle Paperwhite.

https://www.walmart.com/search/?meth...hProductResult

Don't know about other places but the WalMarts near me don't carry Kobo either. Lots of cheap tablets, though.

Some announcements carry more weight and commitment than others.
Some "strategic alliances" mean: "We'll put a standard kiosk in all stores and heavily promote you", some mean "We'll run a two week promo sale", and some just mean " we'll add you to the list of approved sources store managers can order from. If they see the need."

Mileage varies.

I'm guessing either for "back to school" sales, or for Christmas.
