If your head has been in the sand, maybe you don't know that I received a Nook Color for Christmas. I had been trying to get to Barnes & Noble to take a class in my Nook for a while, and yesterday, although a massively busy day, my schedule opened up, allowing me to go to my local store for Nook class. The class consisted of about a dozen of us, split about equally between owners of the standard Black & White Nook and the Nook Color. Since the operation of the B&W is quite different, starting in February they will split their classes so that they can concentrate on a single version. But it was interesting to see what the differences were. There were people with all types of different experience, but I think that the lady sitting opposite from me and me were the most experienced in the group. And I did learn some new things, as well as relearn some things that I had forgotten. Our one-hour class turned into almost two hours long, and it was worth attending. For my friends from outside the US, I did ask about whether B&N will sell the Nook outside of the US. I was told that because B&N is a US company without a presence in the greater world, that they could not do that because of international copyright restrictions. In fact, if I travel outside the US and want to purchase and download a book in Paris, for example, I can't because of international copyright laws. But, I can have someone in the US buy it for my account and after it is purchased and in my account, I can download it to my device from anywhere in the world. I found that to be interesting.
easier and more intuitive to use.
And opening up my envelopes from my CPA, I discovered that she had scheduled our appointment for our personal income tax preparation for Tuesday the 1st of February. NOT!!! I phoned her office and told them that would not work and to have her check her schedule for a couple of weeks later than that. I'll find out what will work for her when I see her for breakfast this morning. That was just a bit too fast for me to get all of my financial information in order.
