I got one for 4600 from a friend who ordered an extra . Should get by wednesday

Lucky you're getting a refund. This is trash.

Why would they make efforts when they know amazon will pay them and just return the money to the customer ? Amazon know this issue and does nothing about it .

I know that. Just lamenting how bad it is now. Remembering fake ds3 and ds2. The only ways you'd tell is if you opened it up and checked the innards. And they were functional 1:1. Still have one fake ds2 and a fake ds3. Both work great.

I ordered nba for switch from Amazon last week. Received titanfall 2 for ps4 instead.

Amazon is Team Titanfall instead of Team apex legends

Major inventory issues going on in Amazon. Heard there are multiple delivery delays. 

Same with Flipkart. 

 

My BBD orders have been sitting at a facility near me from the past 3 days. No updates or response from customer support.

Happened with me with Amazon.

 

Took 4 days to deliver Airpods Pro when I was promised Same Day Delivery. It was at nearby facility but not shifting to 'Out for Delivery'.

 

Once in a lifetime occurence so gave Amazon a pass for this one.

Happening to FK orders for me. Some of my initial orders (prebook and 2nd Oct orders 1st hour orders) got delivered while rest 75% is stuck in the 'Bhiwandi forever' cycle.

 

P.s. I purchased less on Amazon for the lack of an HDFC card.

This explains why a philips buld was missing from my big package. Thr bigger bix that was opened looked exactly how I received mine. What scums, but Amazon would just fire him and do nothing more. I hope they dont start doing this sh*t with small businesses, my business would be fooking dead if they did.

These are all last mile delivery fellas. Amazon doesn't hire them as FTEs. You'll see them competing for delivery bids almost always on a daily basis. 

Amazon has a seperate site for bids, and they specially look at carrying capacity and price per km.

Are there any budget alternatives for the Phillips Hue for ambient lighting for desk/TV? 

 

Any recommendations for something with a remote or which can be controlled via phone? Hue seems too expensive atm.

Xiaomi/Yee and Wipro bulbs are cheap alternatives. There’s also a Mi Lamp that you can use as ambient lighting. Xiaomi works with Google, Alexa, and the Mi Home App. I think Wipro supports both Google and Alexa iirc

if you’re looking for light strips, there are quite a few with built-in buttons and remotes. App/smart home capable ones, I’m not sure about budget alternatives 

 

This is what I’ve stuck to the back of my TV

Not sure how much bulbs will help with the ambient lighting and where to set it up but will look into it!

Any idea how do you connect it to the TV so that the lighting changes as per the scene or something? Never used Raspberry Pi and don't know anything about it and Phillips Hue is just too expensive atm.

 

Mi had launched some smart LED strip as well I think but can't find it anymore.

If I just buy a regular strip and connect the USB to the back of my TV, will it just automatically stay on as soon as I turn the main power on of the TV?
