The genious of Steve Jobs designed the right size of tablet. He could have made a product size between the Iphone and Ipad. But he didn't for a reason. Nook and Fire are too small, especially for reading magazines. Personally, I like netbooks. You can read books and use it as PC - without giving up portability
Trying to repost this, as it seems it didn't work the first time (apologies if this shows up twice). I'm also short. Made $40 grand over the last 9 months shorting this off and on. I'm also concerned about the big blocks of shares trading in the last 10 days. But in the end, the fact is that the book industry is a dying industry. I work in the book industry, so I should know. It's not pretty. And no one has even mentioned the fact that the piracy of ebooks is now exploding. Google ebookee. Any bestseller you want downloaded in minutes. Easy as pie. This is what undid the music industry. Patience will pay off here. Just frustrating now, as there are no shares to short right now. Maybe next week there will be.
The smart people on this board generally don't comment on your posts, as your rants seem to be the words of a hack gambler who uses a chart and a ruler (lazy technical analysis) to place reckless bets.
You should learn a bit about the company and competition, rather than rail against B&N out of anger that your short speculation has cost you a large percentage loss in a few days.
It appears that all of your knowledge about the company has come from reading message boards. How's that working out for you?
