          Translating that as best I can...


          I agree with this, and feel B&N should not abandon producing hardware Nooks.  I know the article talks about the risk for Kindle, and in turn Amazon, but the same risks apply to B&N and the Nook should they follow suit.  With the confusion in the media, and the rumors of B&N moving away from hardware I'm worried that they seem to be relying on Apple and Google, both of whom have ebook services of their own.  There seems to be little preventing either of those companies from putting up barriers for the Nook app on their individual ecosystems.
