Amazon unboxing

Writing about web page http://www.amazon.co.uk

How exciting, a box from Amazon (with 12" ruler for scale)

Amazon box unopened

They certainly don't want the contents to get damaged... and what are they?

Amazon box opened

A lens cap to replace the one I lost.

  1. Hehe. Similar to the replacement hard drive I got last year. Small enough box, but enough packaging in it to protect the disc. Shame that it was sitting under all the soft stuff just laying at the bottom of the box!

    This box had a layer of heat-shrunk plastic at the bottom which I think was intended to securely hold the lens cap in place. But they shrank the plastic first and then put the lens cap in afterwards which did not have the desired effect, demonstrating the non-commutativity of the operations involved…
