I was so impressed with Samsung. I ordered a new laptop directly from their web site at 7:38pm last night. According to the emails I received while I was at work today, the laptop was shipped at 9:45am and delivered at 3:17pm. Shipping was free. Wow, awesome, right?
But then I got home, and the package was nowhere to be found. So I went online and checked the tracking information on Samsung’s web site.

Isn’t that amazing? They anticipated my order and shipped it 17 days before I ordered it!
