AppleTV… no signals till mid-March


Liz pointed this out – Apple is advertising products (aka iPhone) that are not going to be on the market for a while. It is unable to meet its own self-imposed deadlines and release products on time, aka AppleTV. (I have forgotten how long ago they introduced this device.. wasn’t it sometime last year.) Maybe Apple’s new name, till they get their act together should be iFud. Or at least they should not make fun of Vista-delays anymore.



The Delay on the Apple TV is due to FCC regulations and its only 2-3 weeks late, nothing compared to vista. I worked for apple and I can say for the most part I think they are more on top of it then other major companies.


Apple has a completely self inflated view of itself. I used to work for a semi supplier of Apple’s. A lot of smart people, but let’s not kid ourselves, they suffer from the same inefficiencies as anyone else. How many “updates” have they released for OS X again?
