A couple of years ago I made the unfortunate purchase of a S ony Reader Touch (prs-600). We had a contentious relationship from the beginning, thanks to its inability to hold a charge for more than 3 days and really bad customer support from S ony (in Texas AND India). It’s clunky interface didn’t help either. I won’t bore you with the details but in summary, the So ny Reader sucks and So ny customer support is worse.
Two years after that misguided purchase I was so happy when I accidentally leaned my elbow on the reader, causing the screen to mush and bricking it. I don’t believe I’ve ever taken a frustrated hammer to a gadget or pc though there may have been a moment or two in the Nineties when a pc deserved it. Oh, the missed opportunities! It was truly satisfying to hammer that piece of S ony shit.
