David Pogue and Walt Mossberg pan Barnes & Noble's (BKS) Nook e-book reader, with the former calling it "slower than an anesthetized slug in winter." Pogue also notes that the Nook's much-touted distinctions are fraught with footnotes. Mossberg called the Nook annoying, and said Kindle's navigation system "runs circles around the Nook's." Shares of BKS fell 2.7% Wednesday.
