Re: Basic device info flyer

Side question: When I click on the link to download the PDF I posted in this thread I get a message that says: "The selected attachment does not exist anymore." Where did it go? Are attachments not allowed in the forums or are they deleted after a certain amount of time? If so, what is the...

Re: Basic device info flyer

I can confirm your point about using an e-reader in class. I had thought the statement about apps not working in e-readers would cover that detail.

Some are confused about what device to get and either do not get anything or get something that does not do what they expected.
