    Here’s what we know about the SpaceX explosion

    This morning around 9:07 am ET, SpaceX experienced a devastating explosion while completing a routine static test-fire in preparation for a launch on Saturday. Luckily, no injuries were reported, but the payload, the Amos-6 satellite, was on the Falcon 9 at the time and was also destroyed. A nearly $200 million satellite, Amos-6 was set to be launched to geostationary orbit and provide… Read More

  • Uh oh, MacBook Air shipments being delayed 2-3 weeks

    If you recently (like in the last week) ordered the entry-level Nvidia-equipped MacBook Air then you probably got an e-mail stating that your pretentious little toy is being delayed. It appears they won’t begin shipping for 2-3 weeks if you choose to go with a 120GB SATA drive. But if you go with the 128GB SSD drive the shipping estimate speeds up to 3-5 days. Read More

  • Sprint's XOHM WiMax service slips back to October

    Remember just last week, when someone at Sprint said they’d still be launching their XOHM WiMax service in September? Turns out “September” is just a fancy way to spell “October” around the Sprint campus, with the company announcing that XOHM will launch in Baltimore come October 8th. Don’t cruise out to Baltimore to try to bask in the glorious rays of… Read More

  • BlackBerry Storm delayed 3-4 weeks for technical certification?

    BoyGenius is reporting that at least a birdie or two dropped by with a bit of bad news for those anxious for the BlackBerry Thunder Storm: it’s facing delays. If what they’re hearing is right, “Technical Acceptance” testing and adjustments at Verizon HQ may set the Storm back 3-4 weeks to a mid-November window.

  • [UPDATE] Six-cell MSI Wind delayed again, this time until August September

    As I was preparing my review of the MSI Wind earlier today, I noticed that MSI’s product site pulled the notebook down for a bit. It’s back up, but I see that the six-cell battery version of the MSI Wind has been delayed until August now. Last time we reported, it’d been delayed until July. Looks like the battery shortage caused by the fire at the LG plant back in March is… Read More

  • Rumor: 3G iPhone to be delayed?

    Well, this one is just about as speculatory as it gets: Infineon, who might be supplying the chips for the 3G iPhone, announced this morning that they are seeing less demand for HSDPA chips than they expected from an unnamed project. Analysts are guessing this means the next iPhone has either been delayed, or will launch with lower volumes. Nothing to worry about, iPhone fans. If Steve planned… Read More

  • Sad but true, Intel delays Montevina until late summer

    Yesterday we brought news that Intel may be delaying the launch of the Montevina chipset and today PC Mag has confirmed the rumors to be true. Ah well. “There were two minor issues we found during final testing – one with our integrated graphic chipsets, which we have found a workaround for but need to re-screen our parts, and second around our wireless wi-fi chip, which was a… Read More

  • Xohm again delayed for back-end connectivity issues

    Sprint’s Xohm WiMAX networks is facing another delay, though this one’s not because of faulty technology or delays in development, but because the T1 lines carriers traditionally use as the backhaul, or landline connection, aren’t adequate to support the base stations. In other words, Xohm is just now realizing that a 1.5Mbps T1 doesn’t have the throughput, or even… Read More

  • Sprint delays WiMAX

    While Baltimore, Washington, D.C. and Chicago are currently basking in WiMAX service, the rest of the country will have to wait even longer due to a delay by Sprint. Don’t jump the gun, folks. Sprint just wants there to be more WiMAX enabled devices to accompany the rollout.
    Sprint Nextel spokesman Jeff Chaltas anticipates “several more mobile WiMAX devices will be available… Read More

  • Everex CloudBook delayed again until mid-March?

    Those of you waiting for tomorrow — when the Cloudbook is supposed to be available at fine retailers like Walmart — might want to prepare yourselves for a longer wait…again. Already delayed to begin with, the Everex Cloudbook has been, you guessed it, delayed again. First it was Chinese New Year coupled with OS refinements and now it’s snow. Snow. Snow is delaying… Read More

    Don’t worry, guy who wants to make a Neko the Cat port for Android! There’s still time!

  • Slacker Player: It's here at CES, lighter than I thought So I groped the Slacker Portable last night. I’ve been hard on Slacker about how delayed its portable player has been. First it was supposed to be here by the end of the summer, then it was supposed to be here in December, then it got delayed again until the end of January. I hope it launches in the end… Read More

  • Optimus not prime for shipping on time

    Art Lebedev Studios was more than happy to take preorders for the Optimus Maximus keyboard (that we all thought would never see the light of day) but seems to have neglected to make the device’s firmware work well enough to justify the high price tag. The method by which the firmware gets upgraded also needs to be overhauled. Alas, she’s been delayed until the end of February. Read More

  • N-Gage First Access delayed till next year

    One week after promising us that N-Gage First Access would be available [this week], Nokia went ahead and delayed it. The improved N-Gage, which is now a service for the N81 rather than a stand-along cellphone, has now been delayed till 2008 in order to work ensure that it works “smoothly.” An exact date hasn’t been released, but you can bet that Nokia just ruined dozens… Read More

  • Slacker Portable delayed, delayed again

    Aaaaaaand, I’m done. That’s enough for me, thank you. I give up. First it was the end of summer, then it was mid-December, now it’s the end of January when the Slacker Portable is supposed to ship. I have no faith that it’ll ship on that date. Sorry. I’d been waiting to buy this thing since the moment it was announced. I had custom searches and RSS feeds set up… Read More

  • Microsoft delays Surface technology

    Microsoft had hoped to get its Surface technology up and running by the end of the year. It’s now not going to be ready until Spring of 2008, which doesn’t surprise me a bit. This has been happening a lot lately. Before you ask me if and why I hate Microsoft so much, let me tell you that I’m typing this using Microsoft software on a Windows Vista computer. I’m not a… Read More
