If he had ordered from Amazon, he'd be furious, but the gadget it question is the newly launched Pebble Watch, whose Kickstarter he contributed to, and he's willing to be a lot more lenient about it. The truth is, he says, that Kickstarter is not a store, and you need to calibrate your expectations for it accordingly.
