Is it just me, or has tracking packages been one of the few things that has actually regressed in terms of technological progress over the last decade? I remember tracking packages on the internet used to be so cool and pretty accurate. Either the "newness" has worn off, since I'm buying more and more on the web, or the accuracy has gone way down hill. For instance, I'm currently expecting some books from Amazon to arrive. As per their usual Super Saver shipping, they are coming via USPS. According to Amazon, the books shipped on May 27, five days ago. As of this moment, the USPS site still says, "There is no record of this item," and the Amazon site says, "Shipment has left seller facility and is in transit" without any further updates. USPS is the worst, but the other shipping companies haven't been that great (in my experience) lately either. With GPS being widely available, I would think that tracking packages would be getting more accurate, with more updates...not the other way around. Who's with me?
