RE: This Is Bull!*$#! What about a Software Update to the Nook Color?

You think the iPad is a better eReader? You odn't actually read then. The Nook Color is the best overall eReader device ever made. For text only nothing beats e-ink but if you want to read magazines or Calvin and Hobbes, e-ink doesn't work.
1) The iPad has a useless reflective screen, the Nook Color has the least reflective LCD screen of ANY tablet device and is by far the best for reading.
2) The Nook color is the size and weight and shape of a book. Ever held the iPad for hours to read something?
3) The iPad screen is very low resolution - I hate blocky pixelated text in my books. The Nook Color screen is way sharper.
4) The nook color fits in my jacket pocket. Like a book. The iPAd requires a backpack.
