Whenever a holiday falls on Monday, I felt a bit disoriented. As Sunday goes on, Monday is around the corner; “back to work tomorrow,” so I told myself. But wait, tomorrow is 4th of July, Independence Day in the United States.
I spent the day with some friends talking about nothing. We might do something for the Fourth, so we said. We just don’t know exactly what we’re going to do.
I’m rambling again, aren’t I. Well, see you on the Fourth, figuratively.
I made a purchase on Amazon.com during the so called “Black Friday” two minutes to midnight while sitting on a couch somewhere in Sacramento, California. As an Amazon Prime Member, I chose 2-day shipping; Amazon promised a Monday delivery for a portion of my order. The other portion of the order was back-ordered.
To my surprise, I received a notification that my order was delivered on Sunday.
I remembered that Amazon has just started the Sunday Delivery option to certain locations.
From Amazon Help:
Saturday and Sunday delivery is available for certain locations. Local Express can’t be used to ship to P.O. boxes, APO, FPO, or DPO addresses, but it is eligible for Guaranteed Accelerated Delivery.
USA Today reported that Amazon Sunday Delivery is made possible by a partnership by Amazon.com and the United States Postal Service. Amazon Sunday Delivery is currently available in the Los Angeles and New York metropolitan areas.
It’s Easter Sunday and nothing else is really happening. Well, at least from my point of view. Disconnecting from the rest of the tech world.
I know that there are a lot of tech news out there but I’ll save all of them for the coming week. Till Monday which is technicall is coming in 30 minutes or less.
