I just re-registered my NG3 and the User Guide has disappeared!

Do you suppose they're proof-reading and editing it now?

Better late than never!

I think the hope is they are actively revising the User Guide due to possible changes in the partitions.

And they can't wait until the revision is available because?

Does anyone actually read user guides any more?

I don't understand why they would pull the user guide while editing the new one either, but I'm guessing that's probably what they're doing.

I used to, when I was young, with any new tool or electronic device, I read the manual from front to back before using it. Now I just experiment with the thing until I figure it out.

I stopped adding help files to programs at work 6 years ago and no one has noticed yet.

Hadn't noticed there was a user guide on mine until now. I stopped reading them as they've become less and less informative. Now I figure it out on my own or Google it.

In the dim past, manuals used to have useful information. The majority I've seen in the last decade have been dumbed down to the point of uselessness. The last laptop I purchased came with a foldout unpacking sheet and a 20 page manual. Sadly of the 20 pages, 18 were various warnings and regulatory statements in multiple languages. Which USB ports are what? Hit the web for that. JFGI seems to be the popular manual these days.

I have a question: what good is 6 gb of book storage if you have to set up all of the thousands of books you have into shelves? I guess I'm really spoiled with my Glo HD and via Calibre all of my books are put nicely into collections with virtually no work at all.

But then the Nook was never good at that in the first place. Nobody was expecting B&N to revamp their whole OS.

The 6GB of non-partitioned storage was advertised as a feature even when the device went on sale and since the previous model did away with partitioning there was no reason to expect its return.

If you want to use shelves/collections the Nook wouldn't be great to set up I agree. I don't use collections on my Kobo though as I don't feel the need, I just search for what I want by title, author or series name. Don't know how good the Nook is for that...

That's how I use both my Kobo and how I used my Nook. Search works fine as expected, though I don't remember if you could search by series name. I suspect you couldn't. I don't read series much, but I don't remember the Nook having much support for series.

Of course, that was years ago. It may have changed.
