Not Another E-Book's storefront is up!!!


Yes!

Our storefront is (almost) up! The storefront itself is up. You can now create your personal account information and you can add the NAEB-packaged Cybook Gen3 package into your Shopping Cart.

However, Paypal's giving us technical problems so until they get resolved or we get our *OTHER* credit card processor linked, you can't actually check out. Sorry, but we should be up by Wednesday or Thursday.

Anyway, have a Merry Christmas! The included image to this post is something I threw together from three separate Photoshop tutorials. Enjoy!

Wow, so after everyone knows the Cybook blows, you can ALMOST *start selling it*? Quite an achievement. Oh, and you *did* bulk order the non-functional-to-be-replaced cases didn't you? If so, that's two strikes in a row! I'm *very* curious what your elementary teacher will say about your big steps!

Hunh???

You mean after several thousand have actually been shipped and people are using them, you've somehow come to the conclusion they 'blow'???

And what non-functional cases are you talking about?

Sounds to me as if you've been gorging on too many sour grapes of jealousy, my friend.

"blows" overstates it, I think.

My cybook is very pretty, and works quite well.

There's a few very annoying UI choices, but overall, it's still a very nice device.

A good summary of what people have run into can be found in the comments thread for this blog post:

It's sad that Bookeen doesn't have a customer support forum where those issues could have been raised (and perhaps responded to)...

But, as I said in my previous post, I like mine, and I'm glad I got it. If they'd let me push the big button to page fwd, flip it upside down, and fix the library screen, I'd be ecstatic.
