While trying to convince them that it really was the tablet and not the power adapter, they insisted that I had to buy a new adapter. This is despite the tablet still being in warranty for two more weeks. I finally gave in and spent the money to buy a new adapter. It's going to be delivered tomorrow.
And then tonight, this happens:
I haven't even had it a full year. Close, by about nine days, but still not a full year.
Oh well, what are you going to do? I've been wanting a good reason to get the new Nexus 7 or a 10" tablet of some sort. I am stuck with a power adapter that I don't need, though. The cost of shipping it back to Amazon would cost nearly as much as I paid for the adapter itself, so I'm not going to bother returning it. If you have an original Nexus 7 and need a new power adapter for it, let me know! I paid $15.
Still, FML. Stupid dog. And he keeps pooping in the house. Dumb, stupid, annoying dog.
