        This sounds strangely like one of my old high school friends who went on an anti-ereader rant a bit ago.

            I had the first nook that came out and a few months ago I decided to upgrade to the nook hd. I've always loved my nook, I can carry a bunch of my books wherever I go without any extra weight in my purse, with that being said I was a little dissapointed when I realized that one of my favorite authors was only publishing her ebook for the kindle (Out of breath) I could not believe it but luckily with google play and because I own an Ipad I am able to get the kindle app and purchase kindle books. The one thing, so far that I HATE about the nook (and it doesnt really have anything to do with the hardware itself) is that I can't return ebooks, which I find ridiculous because if I can buy an actual book amd return it why not an ebook? I purchased a book that had good reviews (which I always check) and it didn't have a sample only to find out a few pages in that it is the most horrific book ever! I hear amazon does do returns/refunds on ebooks if it's within 7 days of purchase, I mean heck if Barnes and noble even made it 2 days for returns I would be happy. All in all although I hate the $15 I lost on that stupid ebook, I do love my nook. You definitely cannot get the nook app on the kindle and I think it all just comes down to preference, I don't have many apps because thats what I have my ipad for but I always do thorough research on things, there are many articles on Nook vs Kindle, where they give you the pros and cons of both.

              The Nook DRM system is based on credit card number on file when a book is downloaded. As a result once a book has been downloaded (especially if backed up using computer reader) there is NO WAY to "return" it and lock out the copies. A copy can be side-loaded and unlocked by just entering the proper CC number.

               

              Amazon's DRM is more of the phone-home style, in which activating a copy requires the device to check Amazon for the unlock rights.

                The return policy has been the same all along, so why the sudden surprise? Is this the first time the issue came up?

                 

                Also, though it is not policy, have you tried calling and speaking with someone in Customer Service? You will have to explain the issue calmly and rationally (which may be challenging, given the tone of your post), but you'd be surprised how nice and helpful they can be if you are calm and nice with them.

                 

                Worth a try anyway, rather than being out $15.

                  I can totally empathize with this. I bought a e-copy of a picture book from B&N (The Little House by Virginia Lee Burton) only to find out that it had been abridged. No warning in the description. I should have checked the reviews, but I didn't (one person had mentioned it there) so I was stuck with a version that i was really very happy with.

                  This isn't true. You can add the Nook app to the Kindle Fires. After checking the box in the settings menu that allows you to download apps from third party sources, you simply download the app from a store other than Amazon's or Google's.
