    I ordered a Roku device on sale instead of contacting Sony about upgrading the blu-ray player. It came Friday. I like that I can hook it up to any TV.

    I love mine, although I rolled over on it when I was sleeping once and screwed it up. It told me what to do, none of which was I going to and I didn't keep the instructions:rolleyes: So I tossed it aside for a few days After reloading the batteries. It started right back up.
    Kind of like when my phone tells me all the stuff I need to load. When I don't, after a substantial amount of time, it loads everything for me even though I didn't want it to.
    Now that I think about it, technology is kind of like the IRS. They know exactly what we owe. They give us insane instructions which they could just do for us. But I am probably not going to let them since if I wait long enough, they will add all sorts of penalties and interest to it.:confused:
    Probably should have put this under miscellaneous ramblings?

    Question when you order from amazon- does it tell you who is shipping and how? The shoes I ordered that @Tony Nathanson liked- were due between 13 and 19th for delivery. At 8:12 am today got noticed package was at carriers was delivered today at 9:41 ? o_O Short version called post office here and they were delivered there. Why? I even checked my shipping address and it was correct. Any clues? @Tony Nathanson - so far these shoes are great !

    Sometimes, what happens is Amazon ships things with UPS, or other delivery, then it gets handed over to the mailman and the USPS actually delivers our package. If you have mail delivery, they might bring your shoes when they bring your mail, @Hedi Mitchell . If you pick up your mail at the post office, then they will keep the shoes there for you.

    Occasionally, shipping screwups happen. Not often in my experience. Probably new hires that are inexperienced.
