(First, sorry if this isn't the perfect place to post this...so feel free to move it if there's a better place.)
Ahem...uh, well...this question comes up because I happen to work at a business that is currently selling Nooks, and we've just received the new Touch version. However, for some brilliant (<<sarcasm) reason the demo units we've received are not really demo's, they only play a little presentation that shows how what the features are, and it loops over and over. So, we're very surprised that with this new touch sensitive Nook the user really doesn't have any chance to see how it actually works. No ability to test it, read, use the touch screen..nada! Wtf??
I'm curious whether someone might be able to make a bootable copy of the Touch software that will run off a SD card? If we could at least boot off the SD card so customers could at least see how the thing really functions, then it sure would make selling them easier...and no harm done afterward
