They sent a package around the United States for a while, making stops in different offices, which took the readings stored in the minilab inside the package.

UPS leaves my packages in the rain and steps on them. FedEx throws my packages from the sidewalk up against my house. They almost took out my front window throwing my replacement Logitech G19.
