Paul the manager gave you the answer. Everyone is having problems. They are working on the servers in advance of the NC update and app store opening. And since the in-store reading books are provided by the main servers and not each individual store, it has a wide-ranging effect.
just restart the connection on the wifi area. and try to power cycle i believe the issue will be fix once you did that. and by the way were just having a system upgrade right i do apologize for the in convience, but after the upgrade we will be more happy about the service that is given by barns and noble.
I don't think the manager told you anything that wasn't true. I was happeing here in Texas also. I went to the store to read instore Saturday, and could not. I agree with the other posters as it is a sign that the update is coming SOOON!
I would not let one incident swerve your original feelings about the Nook Color's features. So you can't read a book for one hour as a convenience while visiting the store. One hour vs. multiple years of enjoyment.
The iPad is very pretty, but I sure wouldn't like to have Mr. Jobs tell me what I can use myj device for and how to hold it "properly". Do you research - I think you your emotional decision will become a more logical one.
A very "New York" post!
Hello from another NY'er.
Folks here tend to want everything "now, dammit"!
Reading in store has not worked for me at all since owning my device. I have owned my device for about a month.
I am just going to be patient and wait it out. Besides, I am enjoying so much more on my Nook than reading in store books!
Hang in there and be patient!
