News for Wednesday December 19th 2012

galaxy s3 covers


Look at that, six more days until Christmas! Sadly one of my orders got totally messed up and apparently I won’t be getting it until January now. I placed the order November 19th, but it got all messed somehow with all sorts of confusion and I have to say rather inept customer service reps. It has just finally shipped to me, and it’s not even all of it. it’s not that big of deal as it was like just little stocking stuffer type things, so no real big gifts, but still I would have rather had them now for my kids. They even offered me a gift because of the troubles, but then the gift was out of stock and the order still couldn’t ship?!?! Oh well, I hope everyone else had better luck with their online shopping this year! Anyway, it’s time for the news from around the world once again…
