Seriously people, lighten up about the Nook price changes. It's technology; it ALWAYS happens. Several stunning examples: Cell Phones. Cars. Computers...and the list goes on. I bought my Nook at full price and didn't blink. I haven't regretted my decision. I adore my Nook and have been nearly problem free.
Just use a little common sense before you go haring off to the stores for the WiFi only Nooks. They were unveiled today and since there are no shipments on Sundays don't be shocked to find out that they aren't available in store. Most new gizmos are available online before the ever hit the stores. Be patient and they will come, (although a post about the 1.4 Update would have been appreciated.)
I got the new download on my Nook as soon as I turned on my WiFi this morning and haven't had any issues. This update installed in less than half the time of the major 1.3 changes, so it seems like they have found a format that is working for them.
Give the stores and booksellers a little time to adjust to the changes because they knew about as much as the next person. They do the best they can.
