    Apple Announces MacBook Air Shipping, Apple TV Update Delayed

    [​IMG]

    Apple announced today that the MacBook Air is now shipping, as we previously reported. The first MacBook Air shipments are expected to be arriving tomorrow.

    Meanwhile, Apple also announced that the Apple TV update that introduces a competely refreshed version of the Apple TV interface "is not quite finished". The free update has been delayed for "another week or two".

    Apple announced both products at Macworld San Francisco 2008.

    That item is from the day of the keynote, at least the memo is, so I dunno what is going on at this point...

    Baited breath

    I don't see any evidence here, just a two week old press release saying it's due in two weeks, and engadget saying apple told them so.

    Maybe I'm reading it wrong, or doing some serious wishful thinking, either way I still have baited breath.

    Maybe I should have a mint.

    It doesn't mention a delay in the memo, it says "within two weeks", which is what Steve said at the keynote. Seems to me that they would have mentioned a delay if there was one.

    I just caught this over in the AppleTV forum a few minute ago.
    Not too happy about it. What do you think is potentially causing this hold up?

    It's officially delayed...

    I too thought that it was the old Apple press release, but just checked the Hot News section on Apple.com...

    http://www.apple.com/hotnews/

    MacBook Air now shipping; Apple TV Update coming soon
    The world’s thinnest notebook is now shipping, Apple announced today. MacBook Air measures an unprecedented 0.16-inches at its thinnest point. And at it’s maximum height of 0.76-inches, it’s less than the thinnest point on competing notebooks.

    Apple also announced that the free Apple TV software update enabling movie rentals is not quite finished and will now be available in another week or two. [Jan 30, 2008]


    :-(

    I'm disappointed...

    Since the entire interface is apparently gonna be revamped, my guess is they just misjudged their time frame.

    Yeah, let's trust those idiots at Gizmodo who got banned from CES, angering the entire online journalism community which is already struggling for credibility and press credentials.

    I think Gizmodo is either trying to be deliberately obfuscative because they're bitter about getting booted out of CES vis-a-vis their own stupidity, or they're just being inept by citing a deadline given two weeks ago in an article published today.

    EDIT: Ok, I'm mistaken. But I still think Gizmodo are douchebags. :D
