What's in a name? - My Writing Spot

What's in a name? - My Writing Nook has changed name. No reason, just that a bigger gorilla wanted that seat.
Q: Wait, isn't "nook" a common English word?
A: Yes.
Q: And wasn't your name "My Writing Nook," and not just "nook"?
A: Yes.
Q: But your product is software used for writing, and theirs is a piece of hardware used for reading. Aren't those two completely different things?
A: Yes, they are.

Anyway, the app is kewl.

Too bad! The other was so much..."cozier"! :-( And...now, I'll know which e-reader to steer clear of! WTH! They didn't even have "first dibs" on that fricken word! It should be this GREAT-ATTITUDED developer who should have gone after "THEM"!!

LOVED the FUNNY dialogue! I HOPE that the name change will DECREASE the sales for "someone" [who will NEVER be mentioned, EVER AGAIN!!] and INCREASE for 'TWS'! (Oh Oh! I think we just headed into other mirky waters! :-/ )

So's "nookie" but it doesn't mean the same thing at all. :)

And there's no way I'm going to start calling the place where I eat my morning meal a "breakfast spot!" *BAH* B&N be gone.
