I think you mean "slick" rather than "sick" .

Can mean much the same thing depending upon intent.

This is a distortion of the English language that's unknown to both me and my Chambers dictionary .

Proof that you're simply an old man!

(not that I would use it in that sense, but I knew at least it is used so!)

I'm sure you're right about me being out of touch with the modern vernacular, but I'd respectfully suggest to the poster that use of such "street slang" is unhelpful in circumstances where clear communication is desirable. If someone were to say to me "my Kindle is sick", my assumption would be that they were telling me that it was faulty.

Two very reasonable assumptions.

I'll never buy anything from an ad tho, so it's a wasted effort on me. I don't really mind either if I can't jailbreak the Kobo easily or not, IF it has the features I want out of the box.

Hi vickan_,
Did you get the Aura ONE?
How do you find it?
I am in a similar position in that I have a Kindle Paperwhite Edition 2 which has updated so I can't root it .
I love the reading experience on it but hate the book management so am looking for something that:
  1. Has as good as or better eInk screen
  2. Has better book management (mainly for series sorting)
  3. Has decent battery life
  4. Is reasonably responsive
To be honest I would probably be happy with the Kindle if I could jailbreak it as I know there are add ons available to work with calibre but I would like to move away from Amazon if I can.
Kobo looks to be the way to go. I have looked at the H2O and the Aura ONE but some reviews say they are unresponsive and I'm not sure I want a "massive" screen. So your feedback, and anyone else with any input would be appreciated.
Regards
Clive

A new Kindle may not be able to be jailbroken because the new firmware cannot be jailbroken via software.

Neither can my old one because I failed to stop it updating
