TUAW's Daily App: Umbrella Today {TUAW.com}

May 12th 2010 9:38AM I don't know about the app, but the website just scored 10,000 awesome points. If you punch in 90210 as your ZIP, it starts playing a midi of the theme song.

iPad devsugar: Moving beyond your 50 promo codes {TUAW.com}

Apr 2nd 2010 2:13PM Are you guys listening to yourselves? You have to buy the application you MADE YOURSELF in order to give it to people. I hope some other devices with open stores make some traction to force Apple to open things up a little.

Nook ship date pushed back to January 15th for new pre-orders, no Nooks in stores before Christmas? {Engadget}

Dec 4th 2009 4:33PM @iName No, they should be in the hands of as many customers as possible before Christmas. Why should a reviewer get one? They're sold out until Jan 15. Who is B&N trying to convince? Good or bad, they're completely sold out. They don't need any more press. So what if a reviewer thinks it's awesome: the customer who didn't get his nook before Christmas because some tech reviewer poached it isn't going to be a happy camper. I'm sure someone at Engadget pre-ordered one early enough to get one in the first batch and will review it. If not, they're welcome to borrow mine :P

Dec 4th 2009 4:31PM @Laura June Well, that's what I mean. The title of the article (and the original article itself, I think - have you edited it?) made it seem like no Nooks at all are shipping out until after Christmas, when in fact it is just new pre-orders. And yes, who knows if they will get them out before Christmas or not? However, B&N is at least still planning on it. The original article title did not. Thanks for changing it to clarify.

Dec 4th 2009 12:43PM Ya, Laura June really needs to fix the title of this post and clarify. This date is for *NEW PRE-ORDERS*. There are no units going to stores because they want to use them to fill pre-orders. There's no point in putting them in stores and getting people all excited for something they won't get until well after Christmas. At this point, they don't need more excitement/pre-orders, they need to fill as many pre-orders as possible before Christmas to avoid bad PR.

As was stated earlier, though they slipped on the Nov 30 ship date, they still plan on having a ton of Nooks in peoples' hands before Christmas (the people who pre-ordered first). I got the email with a Dec. 9 "promise". Whether or not it will happen, who knows, but they aren't telling me Jan 15.

Engadget: get your facts straight and clarify. Other sites are citing *YOU* with this sensationalist headline - you're propagating misinformation throughout the intertubes.

Barnes & Noble's Nook now sold out for the holidays {Engadget}

Nov 20th 2009 3:32PM Yes, the color screen seems to go off after an amount of time (I think one of the photos from the press event showed the eInk screen on with the bottom part off). At any rate, it seems when you're actually in a book, it's just black-text-on-white menus, anyway, and not the colored home screen.

Engadget's Holiday Gift Guide: e-book readers {Engadget}

Nov 16th 2009 4:56PM Well, looks like B&N is finally getting on the ball with this. Their now updated FAQ:

A Gift Card or Online Gift Certificate currently cannot be used towards an eBook purchase. Please check back for updates.

As the link's name suggests, you can't use B&N gift cards for ebooks, but you can for Amazon/Kindle.

In fact, as has been brought up on the B&N boards, there is currently no way to gift an ebook to a nook user. You can't give them a gift card to buy an ebook, and you can't buy an ebook and register it to their device. You just have to give them cash :(
