What's in a name?
Two thumbs up for Amazon.com
Well, color me one very happy and satisfied customer. When I got home yesterday there was an email waiting for me that directed me to send the software back to Amazon. It also included a link to a UPS shipping label for me to print out. So today I printed out the label and shipped the bad, uncooperative software back. And waiting for me when I got home was an email informing me my replacement software had shipped.
If I hadn't already been a very satisfied Amazon.com customer, I would certainly be one now.
