Quote from: karlhenning on January 14, 2014, 06:50:46 AMMuch as I like my Nook . . . Davey's store of e-readers has opened possibilities to me. Getting a Kindle in, later today. Having two e-readers is not crazeee, is it?
Quote from: DavidW on January 14, 2014, 04:30:08 PMNot to me, I own the Kindle 3, 4 Silver, 4 Black, Paperwhite II, Nook Simple Touch, Kobo Glo, and Kobo Aura HD. I gave the Paperwhite I to my Father. But yes of course collecting ereaders is silly. I only use the Paperwhite II currently.A new feature for the Paperwhite II and the Kindle app that I really like is making the default to show as page numbers. I do like page numbers the best, better than locations, better than time left to read.

Quote from: Scarpia on November 06, 2016, 06:15:23 AMText message, not email? From a cell phone or from a nook tablet?
Quote from: k a rl h e nn i ng on November 07, 2016, 05:17:16 AMThe Messenger app; so, sure, I can imagine that app communicating with the Nook app on the Android phone. ("I can imagine" = "Of course, I must have ticked the box consenting")
Quote from: Scarpia on November 07, 2016, 06:04:23 PMGoogle admits to scanning your gmail to "improve your ad experience" (i.e., earn them more advertising money) but that is data you consciously put on their server. I have never heard of anyone disclosing that they scan your text messages, but this suggests they do.A quick look around seems to indicate that people tend to think the messages sent via Google Hangouts are scanned, but I always assumed that SMS text messages are between you and your phone carrier.
Quote from: k a rl h e nn i ng on November 08, 2016, 05:00:25 AMThis isn't a phone carrier text message, but conversation via the Facebook-related Messenger app. I probably was not clear.
Quote from: Scarpia on November 08, 2016, 06:52:52 AMOh, I would take for granted that any messenger app is scanned for marketing purposes.
Quote from: k a rl h e nn i ng on November 08, 2016, 07:14:45 AMIndeed.
Quote from: k a rl h e nn i ng on September 29, 2022, 06:01:19 PMMy Nook may have died (the power button appears inoperative now.) To be fair, the device is ten years old.
Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on September 30, 2022, 05:15:12 AMEek! Is it something that you can bring in to get fixed? It might be worth it to check and see (and if it's also financially viable).PD
Quote from: k a rl h e nn i ng on September 30, 2022, 05:19:36 AMAlmost certainly not worth it (the warranty's long expired) the power button seems to have recessed into the case. Nothing for it but to get a fresh device, meseems.
Quote from: SonicMan46 on January 14, 2014, 04:49:05 PMHi David - BOY, you've really tried a lot of these readers! I'm still using my iPad 2 from spring of '11; Susan has migrated from a Color Nook to an iPad Mini - I plan to buy an iPad Air in the spring of this year - looking forward to the Retina display - I do read books (usually Amazon Kindle app purchases) & about a half dozen magazines on the device - the 4x increased resolution on the Air will be a relief to my aging eyes.As a general observation, I'm finding reading physical books more difficult, likely for a variety of reasons: 1) My eyes are not the same (similar experience for my wife) and the type seems to have gotten smaller? I now attach 'knitting' magnifiers to my glasses (absolutely needed now for CD booklets!); and 2) My attention span has really deteriorated probably in part related to using computers and jumping back & forth from one tab to the next - wondering if others have had this experience, esp. those in later life? But, I just feel that e-books (mags etc.) will be my preferred reading choice for the rest of my life. Dave
