Finally, Blio is here!
The New New Shiny Thing that will revolutionize reading and throw dirt on all those eInk devices and show the genius of Ray Kurzweil who is Sure How Books Must Be Done.
Forget it, Jack!
This pig has no wings.
See the gore after the break.
This is what happened when I tried to install Blio for Windows XP:
That’s right. Not only does it want additional components that I don’t need or want, it also wants me to ratchet up my XP to SP3!
My PC works fine in some sort of limbo between SP1 and SP2.
Everything I need it to do works fine as-is.
Why would I want to jeopardize any of that for Blio?
I don’t — and won’t.
And guess what? Everyone else who encounters this eejitness is going to feel the same damned way.
This is FAIL.
