Folks, B&N have no right to force us to agree to this contract. And I mean that in the literal legal sense of the word. I own this Nook Touch. I do not have to bow to B&N's wishes in order to use it. The law is quite clear on this point.
Okay, this really doesn't qualify as being broken; it was deliberately designed into the device. But the simple fact is my Nook Touch won't work, and the problem is caused by B&N's deliberate action. I'm furious.
Update: I was going to leave this detail for when you saw the photo, but on second thought it deserves more attention. This contract is 178 pages long. It is longer than the Constitution. How is that reasonable?
