Looks like I may have gotten a rare broken USB port. Honestly, it wouldn't bother me too much—I can use an external battery charger—but in order to use an intervalometer I need to connect an external controller to the micro USB terminal. It's annoying that Sony doesn't build an intervalometer into the camera. It probably can be done by a firmware update.

If possible, return the camera and get another. You need that port to do any firmware updates, if for no other reason.

Later -- "The good news is that B&H will replace my camera since it is within 30 days of purchase."  Good it showed up right away!

And do get an external charger, if only so you can use the camera while you are charging your spare battery.
