Talk:Nook Simple Touch
|WikiProject Computing||(Rated C-class, Mid-importance)|
The infrared grid touchscreen technology used by this reader is the oldest commercialized type. It's reliable and can be adapted to any display technology with a flat screen, or by spacing the IR grid far enough out for the beams to clear the bulge of typical CRTs. Hewlett Packard sold a computer with this technology in the early 1980's. HP-150 Bizzybody (talk) 10:22, 30 September 2011 (UTC)
"Nook 2nd Edition"?
Should we note that it seems that this device is also/was called the "Nook 2nd Edition"? I got one of these today and I saw this name on the boxes for the charger and the various cases. - Thanks, Hoshie 03:44, 17 April 2012 (UTC)
Writer! Be exact!
Fc! Is it very difficult to convert inches into mm accurately? I've lost 60$ because 6.5 in is only 165 and not 170 mm as is indicated! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 14:27, 10 September 2012 (UTC)
- The template makes the conversion, not the editors. It's designed to round up, but since it seems to be an issue, I changed the parameters on the template so that it does not round. - SudoGhost 16:07, 10 September 2012 (UTC)
Concerning the unnecessarily promotional edit
I've said this already in an edit summary, but I wanted to open a discussion since it seems to be a recurring issue. This edit should not be in the article for several reasons:
- There are multiple ways to restore the Nook, and that information is already in the article; the edit in question makes it seem as though there is only one method.
- There's no need to single out and promote one method for no reason; I don't see any third-party reliable sources that have done so.
- Per WP:SPS, forums are typically not reliable sources.
- External links do not belong in the body of the article.
