UPS Hell Update & Amazon Kindle 2

Yeah....I finally have a UPS for what I ordered last Wednesday. I was kind of surprised when I checked the order status at, and found that they had sent the reordered UPS also by UPS. Guess they were trusting that the lost one was a fluke, and wasn't going to happen again.

Fortunately, it arrived.

Also among the UPS deliveries today, was my Amazon Kindle 2.

I haven't opened the box for the UPS yet, but I did open the Kindle package. Kind of neat that the quick setup 'sheet' isn't on the plastic that protects the screen but saved into the screen itself.

However, the USB power cord was kind of annoying. First its yet another unique USB plug that I have to deal with, guess I'll put another one in my shopping cart for future purchase. Second the orientation was backwards from what I expected. There's an AmazonKindle logo on what appeared to be the top, and the curved corners were opposite this it seemed that this was the top for plugging it in. But, it wasn't.

I thumbed part way through the user's guide, and then added some stickers to it (a StuffBak label) and put it into its cover and then left it to continue charging.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
