Re: Barnes and Noble Suied by three publishers.

what ? is going on. Just buy paper books for get em from the libraary. Same thing with music just buy the cd so have it forever instead of losing everything when the computer dies. That and theres a reason theres art work for both and a reason that tracks are put in order- to make an album.

I hate this e book things and e music and e mail. Corless phones and all this stuff. Arg not necessary.

^So what are you doing posting on a computer BBS?

Also: computer data can be backed up. My CDs could break and I'd lose them, but if I have copies of their music saved on my computer and my flash drive, then I'll still have it.

You've never had a cat jump on the record player while playing an LP? Never had a tape recorder chew up your audio tape? Never scratched a CD on the sharp corner of its plastic case? Never lost a piece of sheet music to fire?

Re: Barnes and Noble Suied by three publishers.

Not to mention the fact that, although I lived in Korea for the past two years, I was able to read every single new Trek release within minutes of the street date, along with several older titles. AND I was able to bring that entire collection home with me last month in the top pocket of my backpack. Don't get me wrong, hard-copy books are my first love and by far my first choice, but without ebooks my reading habits would have been impossible to maintain.

Re: Barnes and Noble Suied by three publishers.

While checking my email today, I stumbled across an email from Barnes & Noble saying I'll be getting the settlement credit soon.
