I would strongly support having a new thread with requested improvements.

If possible, it would be nice to have a "poll" where anyone can add a new item, and everyone can vote on how important that feature is to them.

I would agree disagree with you for most people who read more than a book or two per month. For myself, I have a fair number of large ebooks which, as mentioned earlier, would allow me to exceed the 930MB user space with 6 books. Even if I go to more reasonably sized books, I would have fewer than 700 books. With my average number of books per year, that limits my lifetime to <3 years without even considering that I also carry quite a few reference ebooks which tend to be fairly large and not books that I read but rather refer to -- I doubt that many people would read a Cisco command line reference text for entertainment.

In one beta program I participated in a few years back, you had to use the build number to separate the last release candidate from the final release. When I asked about this, the explanation was the beta was built with full debug support while the final release was built with limited debug support.

It was several factors:
  • Nook had a history of limiting space for sideloading, something Amazon and Kobo don't do
  • They finally did away with that with the previous model: Glowlight Plus
  • Glowlight 3 advertised the 8GB of storage, all available to the user. Even their employees were confirming this after the device went on sale
  • 1GB is significantly less than the competition offers

I picked some random eBooks that totaled up to 1GB and no, 1GB is not more than one can read in a lifetime.

I by 'one' you mean 'you', then you may be correct. If by 'one' you mean 'anyone', you are sooooooooo wrong.

Through High School and College I was reading a book/day, and I would have used up that GB a long time before graduation.

I have a job now, but I still manage to read a couple of books/week.
