No good :(

Point and shoots camera sales are bad, now it is going to get worse.

What's going on Canon?

Your list sounds like a $2290 DSL not a $229 pocket camera for a beginner.

Amnon G: Before the onslaught on Nikon begins...
It is possible this is an oversight (i.e. testing at Nikon happens only with 1st party batteries).
Claiming evil with no proof is just childish. It's unfortunate for sure, but hopefully will get resolved with another update shortly.
I'm relating to reactions I've seen on different sites - I think that the step function reaction is a bit childish and assuming people don't know what they're doing (even though the person making the bold name calling doesn't have even a fraction of the data to make such claims) is irrelevant.
Nikon's actions in the next few months will be the determining factor whether this was an oversight in good faith or really a silly attempt at making more money.

How many Nkons do you own? What else could it be?

On article Site Updates and New Features (102 comments in total)

I have been lobbying a couple years for a new appearance item. The black background with white letter precluded pasting valuable articles into any document like Word. If you try to print something out of DPR it drains your ink cartridge and the page has so much ink on it a clothes dryer is needed.
But I guess that is one way of copy protecting info from mere readers of this site for 11 years. After all, we are not to be trusted.

The content of DPR articles cannot be copied and pasted without including the black background which uses up lots of ink. Various website updates have not corrected this oft suggestion of mine so DPRs intent must to be to copy write this user hostile feature.

Dropping XP excludes lots of potential sales. adobe with photo shop update restriction make Microsoft look docile.
