You make some excellent points. The ones I agree with (and they are all minor) are:

Turning the navigation control clockwise should zoom IN not OUT.

I placed the order at 4 PM 9/4, it started production yesterday (9/9) and will be completed 9/12. It should take a week or so for delivery to Connecticut.
