I'm sure you've seen this commercial highlighting Amazon's new Mayday feature on it's Kindle Fire HDX. Well my friend Jonathan Cribbs in Maryland received a Kindle Fire HDX for Christmas, and he and his family didn't believe a real person would actually be there to video chat with them. So they tested it out. Here's Jonathan's hilarious recap of the conversation with Kyle at Amazon Kindle HDX MayDay support. ---
Guy: Hi, this is Kyle at Amazon's Kindle HDX Mayday support.
Me: Whoa. Hey, OK... here's--
Guy: Can I help you resolve an issue with your Kindle?
Me: I'm going to apologize right away because no, no you can't. I have no issue. I just opened this gift in front of my family, I'd heard about the service and it seemed absurd and unsustainable that an actual human being would appear on this screen and here you are.
Louise: [background] Let me see the guy! I want to see the guy!
Me: That's my mother. She wants to confirm you're on the screen.
Jackie: [background] Let me see!
Me: These are people in my family. Like I said, I just opened this, and you're here, we've confirmed this.
Guy: Well, is there anything you'd like to know about your Kindle?
Me: It all seems fairly intuitive. I'm going to let you go. I'm sure you're being bombarded--
Jackie: [background] I feel bad for him. It's Christmas.
Me: I bet he's being paid double or something. Yeah. So, Merry Christmas. And I apologize again. We all assumed there was some catch to this. There doesn't appear to be one. It's all true. An actual human being appears on the Kindle screen.
Guy: Merry Christmas.
Me: Bye. [background] If you think about it, it's really no different than a telephone guy in India or whatever. There's just a camera. Maybe I shouldn't be as impressed. They just added a camera. Why didn't anyone do that before? ... But then again, there was no wait. It was instantaneous--
Guy: Merry Christmas...
Me: Oh. He's still in the Kindle. Get him off the Kindle.
