The initial response from B&N is telling: they deleted the first thread raising the issue and then marked the current thread "Operates as Intended." As an owner of one of these beasties myself, I'd love to fully utilize the hardware I own.
The opposite of a correct statement is a false statement. But the opposite
of a profound truth may well be another profound truth.
