Submission + - Nook color bricked following 1.2.0 update (barnesandnoble.com)

jeffviper writes: Looking at the official Barnes and Nobles board, a lot of users experiment a quick rebooting and reset of their device just after connecting to the Wifi.

Every piece of data stored onboard is erased and the device is deregistered automatically. By then, it is impossible to reconnect to Barnes and Noble to register the componnent again due to two issues : website does not respond to request and Wifi connection doesnt stop to stop and to restart.

It BN-pocalypse !!!!


Submission + - Nintendo Chief: Consumers Don't Understand 3DS Yet (ibtimes.com) 1

gabbo529 writes: "Nintendo's latest financial results reveal that initial sales for the first ever 3D gaming system have been underwhelming at best. What's the reason? Nintendo chief executive Satoru Iwata says consumers have yet to fully understand the console's 3D capabilities, even when trying it out. Others think it might have something to do with the console's high price ($250) and the lack of big-name titles available (Mario and Zelda are not yet out)."

It is easier to change the specification to fit the program than vice versa.
