Win a Kindle

Fellow PowerShell MPV (and former SAPIEN colleague) Don Jones is off to a new venture with Redmond Magazines’ Greg Shields. Their offering up a tasty incentive to get people involved with their new site. If you post a relevant comment to one of their blog entries you’ll be entered into a drawing for a free Amazon Kindle.

Don showed my his Kindle the last time we were together and I have to admit it is intriguing. Personally, if Amazon could add a sexy form factor ala Apple, I’d buy one in a heartbeat. Although honestly, I can barely get through books I check out of the library between work, kids, wife and everything else. But who’s going to pass up a free Kindle? Anyway, check out Don’s site and get involved.

PowerShell TFM back in stock

I’m a little late in posting this, but Amazon.com now has copies of Windows Powershell: TFM back in stock. I know SAPIEN Press is also working on getting the title available through Barnes & Noble and maybe a few other places. When I know of other places, I’ll be sure to let you know.

I also encourage you to post a review or comments on Amazon about the book. We really do listen and pay attention.

Lost in the Amazon

Still waiting for Amazon to realize they need to order more copies of Windows PowerShell:TFM. Now they state that the book is not available, where it use to say unavailable. What difference does that make? You still can’t order the book. The latest I’ve heard is that Amazon has not re-order and will not until their computer system tells them to. It is all automated. Well don’t you think if a product is not available and the publisher is telling you there’s no re-order, wouldn’t a real person step in?

I’m all for automation and efficiency but that doesn’t mean you abdicate all responsibility.

Sorry for the rant, but it’s frustrating when we know people would like to buy the book, but can’t. Well at least not from Amazon. ScriptingOutpost has plenty of copies. Still, if you want to purchase from Amazon, I encourage you to contact them. Ask them if the book is in stock. If not, has it been ordered? When will it arrive? You gotta hope they’ll listen to customers.

If you contact Amazon and get a response, I hope you’ll share it with me.
