    Like Being John Malkovich, and all they can say is Browne. "Browne browne browne, browne browne browne browne browne."

    Saw Why? last night which was at least worth the $12 on a Wednesday night when I had nothing better to do. It was seated though, which was wack.

    This doesn't seem overly useful. The UPS web site already tells you the day your package will be delivered. And UPS always delivers in my neighborhood within the same 2 hour window nearly everyday. So telling me the 4 hour window within which my package will be delivered is not really helpful.

    It would be really cool if UPS's systems mapped out a delivery path / schedule prior to each day. Then throughout the day as the driver scans the packages ahead of yours in the queue as being "delivered" the system would continually update its delivery time estimate. As the driver comes increasingly closer to handling your package, the delivery time countdown would become extremely accurate.

    They'd likely never do this though since it's safer to tell customers a crude 4 hour window and stick to it, as opposed to having exact estimates that can change.

    I didn't know what they were either. After seeing the pictures I'm pretty sure I have never seen anyone wearing them locally.

    Same here. But should we be surprised? Only a few boutique shops with tiny amounts of floor space and inventory sell higher end designer brands. $100,000+ cars are more commonplace than this shit.

    All good points. Still, I'll take any additional info from UPS I can get. At this point I half expect their estimated delivery to just say, "We're thinking of a time between 1 and 10. Can you guess what it is?"

    I bought a Signals by Luca Laurini sweater from Atelier when I was in NYC, and I don't really want to wear anything else ever again.

    Anyone else have a hands-down favorite piece?

    my cosmic wonder bomber. I can't believe I had it listed for sale at one point. After I realized pulling it off wasn't a big deal, it became something I wouldn't give up.

    Amazon is currently testing a new idea (I think in some town in Oregon) where they will put automated package storage lockers in 7-11's. People whose zip codes are in the test range can opt to have their packages sent to the 7-11 lockers where they can be picked up. Packages can be retrieved by entering the tracking #/confirmation code. It's an interesting idea, especially for people who don't like having packages left at their doorstep/have trouble making it to the post office during their open hours due to work. Maybe it will catch on in bigger cities

    Don't they do this in parts of Asia? I remember something like this when I visited Japan.
