In the “good old days” people only owned a handfull of items, and keeping an overview over one’s possessions wasn’t all that difficult.

In this digital age, keeping thousands of songs, pictures, movies, and ebooks sorted requires a bit of effort. And that’s exactly why meta data is such a neat thing: Our latest holiday snapshot is not only dcim262gh6.jpg, it’s also #summer #fun #2020 #icecream

Therefore, it’s really unaceptable that Tolino ebook readers can sort books by author and title but not by genre, (number in) series, language, publisher, or any other meta information that is readily available in the book file.

Sloppy at best, stupid at worst.
