New York Times Hates The Nook…. Really, Really Hates It

So The New York Times finally posted their review of the somewhat-anticipated Barnes & Noble Nook e-book reader… and from the very second sentence, the hatred begins. Here are a few fun quotes:

““Over one million titles?” Yes, but well over half of those are junky Google scans of free, obscure, pre-1923 out-of-copyright books, filled with typos.”

“Worse, the touch screen is balky and nonresponsive, even for the Nook product manager who demonstrated it for me. The only thing slower than the color strip is the main screen above it. Even though it’s exactly the same E Ink technology that the Kindle and SonyReaders use, the Nook’s screen is achingly slower than the Kindle’s.”

“That “color touch screen,” for example, is actually just a horizontal strip beneath the regular Kindle-style gray screen. (In effect, it replaces the Kindle’s clicky thumb keyboard.)”

You can see the whole thing on at NYTimes.com.
