OK, let's talk some more about how incompetent HP is. As mentioned earlier, I order a case from the H&HO store last night. I check my order this afternoon and it shows that it's already shipped. That's great, even though I didn't get a shipping notification email. So I click on the tracking info link and it takes me to the Fedex site which, of course, shows no information on the shipment.
Now, this is fairly normal since it can take a while for the shipment to show up on the Fedex site. So a few hours later I go to check it again. But this time I cut and paste the shipping number into Google because it's easier that way. Lo and behold, it turns out the shipping number isn't a Fedex number but instead, it's a USPS number.
Not that I really care since the case will likely be empty for 6 to 8 weeks. I just found it pretty silly.
