Business Week instigated use of non-postal service delivery well over a year ago. Of course, when you do that, you cannot put the publication in the recipient's mailbox (that's actually a federal offense). As a result, I ended up with that publication in the bushes, run over by cars, soggy from the sprinklers, etc. - the same problems that I often have with newspaper delivery.

I quickly got on the phone with Business Week's subscription department and got switched back to postal service delivery. (Business Week does accommodate such requests, but doesn't publicize it!) The magazine may arrive a day later, but at least I get it in readable form!
