I was a little peeved yesterday when people were able to get Nexus 7s from GameStop and possibly other stores but the one i'd ordered directly from Google hadn't even shipped yet =P Then around 2am this morning i got an email from Google saying they sent it out. I'm kinda hoping that means they actually sent it out sometime during the day on friday, or does UPS do 2am pickups if you're a big enough customer? Of course UPS doesn't do sunday deliveries, so even if it did go out yesterday the earliest i'll get to see it is probably monday.

Still though, Google you really need to work on how you handle deliveries. For hot items Amazon can manage "day of release" delivery. Now i realize that you're not in direct competition with Amazon, but... oh wait, you _are_ in direct competition. But seriously, shipping out the devices people pre-order directly from you a day or two early can't be that big a challenge. Amazon presumably has to work out deals and assurances with the people who actually own the stuff they sell, while you're the (co-)owner of the device in question, you get to determine when it ships and when it goes on sale in stores. So please try to do it right next time?

Cleaning stuff

I just did a whole bunch of dishes. Which isn't that unusual, except that most of them came right out of the dishwasher. I'm not sure if the crusty white stuff that was on some of them was some kind of white food substance that didn't get washed off, or if it was soap that was first deposited by the dishwasher and then not washed off. In either case our dishwasher is definitely not quite doing its job right =P

So the fact that some of the dishes had crusty white stuff on them made me kind of paranoid, so i went ahead and rewashed them all by hand.
