C'est Mort!!

My Cybook is dead. For those who've been keeping track, remember when I accidentally dropped it back in September? As you recall, the only noticeable problem was a column of dead pixels in the display. Well, last Wednesday, as I was clicking the power button to shut it down, the button clicked extra-loud and failed to pop back up. It's broken and can't be user repaired.

This is a bad thing. I'm now deprived of my vast collection of ebooks that I'd stored on the Cybook and I'm cast back out to suffer with my Axim PDA and dead-tree books.

This is a good thing. I'll be getting, as soon as I can FedEx the dead unit back to Bookeen, a new Cybook Gen3. This one will have the complete Not Another E-Book package, including a 1GB SD card and the leather softcover. And it will have a matte finish instead of the glossy finish my engineering sample has.

So long engineering sample buddy, I'll miss you. Hello production model, welcome to your new home!
