I got that free USPS scale. The thing needs a USPS account to function. I had the account before but had to cancel the trial. Now I cant use the scale anymore too.

I took pictures of the thing:

So... where do we go from here?

I am in Canada, I didn't relize that that USPS was giving away free scales! I wish Canada Post was doing the same. Smile

There is probably a way you can read the raw USB data from it. I am sure that you won't be able to use their software anymore without hacking it. Let us know what you find out.

Yup, they give the scale for that trial and we can cancel the trial and keep the scale. I have no idea how to read the USB data or what to do with this. :.d
