Awwww that's awful nice of you Spooky to not leave Kobo users out, lol.
My first e-reader was a Kobo and it was a piece of junk. I had to return it to the store to swap out for another. Apparently they aren't made very well as the store said my issues were a common occurrence. I couldn't load books without having to go through Adobe Digital Editions, even then I couldn't always get them to load on the Kobo. I only got it because at the time Kindle wasn't available in Canada. Even the replacement was an annoyance. I got an Ipad a few months later and junked the Kobo. I don't know if other Kobo users had the same issues as I did but I would never recommend buying one.

Gene I use Kobo for more than a year. The hardware is good, but their software is ridiculously bad. I wonder if they have any kind of quality processes for the updates which introduce two new bugs for each fixed one. Still if one uses it with Calibre, it becomes quite good. The price (low) is another positive thing about it.

From the "better late than never" section...

Walmart has partnered with Japanese Kobo maker Rakuten to sell ebooks for Kobo eReaders on Walmart's website. (Kobo is a Canadian company bought by Rakuten back in 2011.)

Wally-World has been trying to compeate with Amazon for awhile now. I personaly think they can't do the job, but we shall see. I wish the Kobo luck...
