Sony reader shouldn't really say unsupported... Or maybe unsupported natively textr can read the books after all.
And if used with full force could be a very good option(haven't tried that myself though as don't have txtr)

My IPad is great, but twice now I have checked the time on its clock and it's an hour or two slow. Has anyone else had IPad clock issues?

toomanybooks, I haven't had any clock issues-but I have the 3G version, which I think synchs automatically to an accurate clock..somewhere

Do you Date and Time set to Set Automatically in Settings/General?

I've got the WiFi only version, but my clock is absolutely accurate. I've got WiFi on almost all the time and browse the web frequently a few times per day; maybe this makes the difference...
