Google is going further down the Soup Nazi route by now telling the people that got their their orders through, that they aren't getting them. I think it's all a Big Cruel Joke. They only had a dozen of these things lying around, and they wanted to see all the puppy dogs jumping at the hanging meat.
I can just imagine them as the French Knights, taunting everybody outside the wall, while drinking their free Lattes, and playing Fussball. "Euw yeu stoopid English!". I am resigned to writing IOU's under the Christmas tree, just like in the good old days of the latest Nintendo. :(
