        OP's hostility is disturbing. He/she needs to seek professional help I think. Getting that hateful and vicious over something so trivial is not normal. You need help for your anger issues. You're scary.

          I'm not so sure that these forums are B&Ns primary source of input from customers. For those of us on the forums, we start to think that they are the center of B&N's customer universe, but they aren't. B&N gets a lot of support input via email and from people walking in stores and commenting. In addition, they've indicated that the forums are not here for the purpose of B&N official support but for user interaction, although they do lurk here and pick do gather some input from here. All that said, I'm quite surprised about all the fuss over text labels and wall paper.

            While I understand this forum is not the "be all, end all" to everyone's opinions, but it would be fair to say that EVENTUALLY those opinions or complaints (or simlar) will end up here.

             

            All the fuss about text labels has to do with, "I don't want them"..simple..  Wallpaper-that means having to recrop everything we had either in the NC or on our computers to make them fit the screen again.  I have a wallpaper that came with my NC skin and it fit perfectly (seamless) until the update.  Now I can't use it as the NC wants me to crop it. I didn't fuss about the cookbook or landscaping reading ability either..to each their own.  Just because it doesn't bother you, doesn't mean it won't bother someone else.

              Yes I agree, having used pocket pcs and palms I expect the button to fail. You couldn't of made this a selectable option. Is BN going to extend the warranty on the button? I also found a site that said I need the latest adobe flash update. WHAT? I just got the update and now this? It could be a error on the site but could BN at least allow the comsumer to update the flash without waiting for BN to do it? I also agree that BN has not addressed issues I have seen posted in past commments.

                Wow I missed that one! The FTC? Reminds me of the guy who called 911 about his iphone not working. Or the woman who was going to get the "internet police" to investigate why her son or grandson was having problems with something on the internet.

                  Why is that?  I've used Handspring Visors and Palms for 10 years and only had a button fail on me twice.  Heck, I've had displays fail on me that many times.

                    Yeah, thanks a whole ****ing lot for your cr*ppy upgrade, B&N.  Thanks a whole lot for *****BREAKING***** the functionality of my device.  Thanks a lot for turning my NT into something *LESS* functional than a $79 Kindle.  Now not only don't you provide apps I was planning on using, you've taken away hope of actually making your P.o.S. USEFUL.  Thanks for SONY-fying our systems; as in thanks for NOTHING

                     

                    Really looking forward to the day someone breakes through tiyr locked bootloader and we can run a proper, unencumbered system.  For now you could get more functionality with a used Palm Zire.

                      jelabarre59: I think you're being a bit over-dramatic there. A Zire? Seriously? To be sure, there are annoyances, but I've yet to find one that can't be worked around satisfactorily. What are your main issues?

                       

                      As to the bootloader, the Nook Color does not have a locked bootloader. You can easily run alternate firmware today if you've got the motivation to do so.

                        Oh get over yourself and can the melodramatic nonsense. If you want a "proper, unemcumbered system" get a Nook Color, and while you're at it, grow up. You sound like a three year old who was just told they can't have something.

                            Which brings up something Dean was saying, you would have have BN would have kept the version numbers separate especially as the firmware is not the same (not even written in the same verson of Android).  They easily could have done even numbers for one and odd for the other or alphabetical codes or something.  Then at least people would whine about the right things...

                              I'm sure I'll adapt to the nook color UI changes over time but the cropped book covers and nook wallpapers looks unprofessional. Hope B&N fixes that on the next update I hate looking at ill fitting/pixelated images.

                                You are replying to a long-dead thread about the previous release. If they didn't fix whatever it it you are worried about in 1.4.2, its not going to be fixed in the NC. They announced that the NC would no longer be in production when the Nook HD was announced.

                                 

                                Are the book covers in B&N book purchases cropped? I've never noticed anything off about them, but then again I don't buy a tremendous number of titles, either.

                                 

                                Or are you referring to something that Calibre does when it converts an epub to the standard B&N file layout, which "fixes" the book covers in the sense that the Nook Home launcher app can find the book cover?
