This week, I discovered something that's sort of shocking, when you think about it: Barnes & Noble has been claiming that the Nook weighs less than it really does.
OK, not by much. The company says the thing weighs 11.2 ounces. In fact, it weighs 12.1 ounces. (I discovered this when my daughter set it on a home postal scale. Later, I confirmed it with a fancier scale at the actual post office.)
That's right: Barnes & Noble conveniently shaved 7.4 percent off of the Nook's weight, and hoped nobody would notice.
