According to various news reports, Apple is delaying its Apple TV ship date from February to mid-March. Production of the device is taking “a few weeks longer than we projected,” according to Apple spokesperson Lynn Fox.
According to previous accounts, pre-orders have been selling quite well — though if you’ve already forked over your $299, you’ll be understandably miffed by this news. Apple is normally pretty good at shipping products when they’re announced. Dare I say it, but vaporware pre-orders and missed shipping dates are more typical of Apple’s nemesis to the north, Microsoft.
