Two days after receiving Amazon’s cancelation of my DeepRacer order, Amazon sent me another email:
We’re contacting you about order # for the following item:
AWS DeepRacer – Fully autonomous 1/18th scale race car for developers
Your pre-order was unintentionally canceled due to an error on our part. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused. We have reinstated your order, and you will receive an AWS DeepRacer when the devices are ready to ship later this Fall.
OK. All I can do now is wait. At least they have owned this error on their part. I should be thankful, but at this point I’ve developed a rather fatalistic attitude that I’ll ever see this order.
