Recovery through touchable toys

Having come to the end of six weeks of hairy job after hairy job after hairy
job (which thanks to skill, planning and rampant paranoia on my part all
went well) I decided that I deserved a treat.
So I bought myself a shiny new vCbq gbhpu. The 16GB version. I won't go into
the hoops I had to jump though with Nznmba, but first they sent the wrong
model (a Classic), then they shipped the replacement to the wrong address,
forcing me to almost have a stand up argument with Shitty Link.
So, given that AHS I'm very pleasantly surprised. It's actually lived up to
all my expectations - even exceeded a few. I agree that the decision not to
include an email app was rather odd, and the frankly bizarre choice to not
to allow adding of calander events is...well, bizarre, but other than
that it's a nice bit of kit. The WiFi stumbler is pretty darn good as well,
although it seems to be able to detect networks long before it can actually
connect to them, but hey ho. Web browsing is frankly wonderful.
This is the first device I've bought in a long, long time that I haven't
been disappointed with in some (significant) way. Nice to know it can
It'll probably blow up tomorrow...
 and depending on who you believe, nothing more than a bug which will be
fixed Real Soon Now. I'll believe it when I see it.
