UPDATE UPDATE

I watched the presentation of the Nook Color on HSN this morning, and the guy said that HSN customers are "guaranteed" to get the update by the end of April, and "who knows" when everyone else will get theirs.  I personally think that everyone will have an equal chance at being one of the first ones to get the update, but I thought the interesting part of this was the fact that he said "guaranteed" by the end of April.

Don't be discouraged. I'm sure HSN will say anything at this point to keep their customers happy even if it isn't necessarily the whole truth.

Re: UPDATE UPDATE

I was at my B&N yesterday and the nook guy was telling someone else the difference between the two nooks.  He said Monday there will be a big announcement about the update.  They don't know what the announcement is or what the update will include but something should happen Monday.  If nothing else maybe we will get a definite date on Monday.

Re: UPDATE UPDATE

When I was in B&N store this weekend, I was told that the update would definitely occur by May 1st. One of the salespersons told me.

Re: UPDATE UPDATE

I bought my NC as soon as they came out.  Actually, they were sold out so I has to order it and wait for a month.  Anyway, my point is that everyone should get the update at the same time.  IF HSN shoppers get NC's WITH the update, then that tells me that B&N doesn't give a flip about their customers.  The ones that ALREADY have the NC should get the update before anyone else--or at least at the same time as new customers!  That's just my opinion.  I am not holding my breath.  I wonder if  the ppl that have paid for the extra insurance have damage done to their Nooks and get a replacement if it would be the updated ones???  I think not.

Re: UPDATE UPDATE

I recently talked to a BN Employee while a family member was picking up a nook color case. She said the update will take place between this week and the next. She didn't look definate though. With BN, you can never be sure.

Re: UPDATE UPDATE

Called my store just minutes ago...all he would say was soon, but he did note the zStaples ad that shows the Nook Color with angry birds. And the fact they will begin selling it May 1.

Ok, at least I know it will be out before May 1st. Or, so I hope.

Well.....I was getting my hair done, and Brandy, who has been there FOREVER, said that her boyfriend, Sly, just happens to work next door to a Barnes and Noble. He just got out of prison, for cat fighting (like Michael Vick with the dog fighting, but the cats wouldn't fight eachother. They just attacked everyone that came to watch.....not a good scene).....but that's neither here nor there.

 

 

Anyhoots.....he walked next door to use the bathroom at the Barnes and Noble because the bathroom where he works....Ta Tas Bar and Grill (just like Hooters, but they got sued for trying to call it Owlies).....aaaaanyways.....the bathroom at Ta Tas isn't working, so he went next door to B&N to use theirs. While he was there, he happened to overhear Gladys Busboom, the BIGGEST gossip in Hooterville, (since Madge passed away.....long story) tell her husband Roy that the update was coming sometime this month. "Well, DUH!", Sly says. "Everyone knows THAT, Gladys. What DAY?" So Gladys gives him her best, "Don't EVEN start with me" look and says, "I don't know, Sly....why don't you ask one of your cats." And Sly was all like, "Oh no you didn't!"

 

 

So then Roy steps in and tried to calm the waters, but he accidentally spills his Starbuck Double Venti Mocha Late on Gladys' brand new Easter skirt that she got at Brandy's Bargain Barn (different Brandy), and then Gladys was all up in Roy's face and Sly really had to pee so .............wait.......what was I talking about?

 

 

Oh yeah, the update. Sly thinks it will be this week. And remember, he works RIGHT NEXT DOOR to a Barnes and Noble. So....you know.

I got NOTHIN' on Phoneboy.  He is in a class by himself! :smileytongue:  I just am getting such a kick out of how many different stories we are getting from "really good sources".  Clearly, nobody has a clue.   Including Brandy*.
