    Nope. I just find it annoying. There is no point. Keep doing this if you want, but do not assume that everyone likes it, especially in an official news thread.

    Highly recommended: Die Errettung des Schönen by Byung-Chul Han. What's the connection between Brasilian Waxing, Jeff Koons, and the iPhone? I recommend it to anyone here who understands German and is interested in the effects of technology on society. Particularly recommended if you've never read any of Han's books before. The first chapter can be read for free at the previous link ("Leseprobe PDF").

    Huh? If you do want on-topic now, you can still contact me.

    Ah oke, I haven't seen it from this point of view. I agree that an extensive use of memes in a news thread can be annoying.
    I will reduce it.

    Don't you mean the touch screen? (or pgup/pgdn)

    The touchscreen is probably quite useless for web browsing...

    More than anything I'm just worried about that hinge.

    I know I know stop bringing up the fucking hinge, but its easily the ONLY thing about the Pandora I can't reconcile. It takes the device, with all the other flaws considered, from a perfect 10/10 to a 7-8/10. And it's clear ED loves having the pandy and the pyra in full travel so they are 180°, so it probably doesn't bother him. But it drives me crazy. Its one of those things -like the keyboard- where no matter how many updates we get about it until I have it in my hands I won't be certain they nailed it. All the other stuff is secondary if I can't just leave the thing open without it falling all the way back or slamming shut when I jostle it.

    Can't wait to see how that turned out when I get mine.

    I appreciated this also for ebook reading, I was alway able to scroll with just one hand, regardless which one.

    I was also not a fan of the Pandora's hinge when I first discovered mine wouldn't stop at 160 degrees, or whatever stop my Nintendo handhelds have, and wouldn't stay put if I put it at that. But I got used to it, and even put my Nintendo handhelds on that stop now. It works especially well when I use the Pandora's keyboard, as I use a slightly different grip that swings the Pandora around and brings the screen to 90 degrees from my face just fine.

    Also, ED designed the Pyra's hinge to be more firm than the Pandora's floppy hinge, so the screen should be able to stay at any angle, although I don't think that's actually been tested yet. I'm not sure what's stopping that test, so I'm a little concerned that I've not heard about it now you bring it up, but I hope ED hasn't been remiss in checking that in the various case builds he's receive thus far.

    ...wasn't this a news thread a few pages ago?

    I'm just sorry for everyone who gets notifications whenever something is posted in the official news section. You should have known better. *turns off RSS Feed*

    Ah, yes. One-handed operation; perfect for "ebook" "reading."

    I thought we represented 'the exception to the rule'.

    I know I certainly do.

    I'd be the 'clueless dumb brute' character who no-one gets along with. Would just need a couple more people as well as a school setting.
    get ready for 4 whole seasons of loveshy, awkward situations that'll make two months feel like 4 years.
