Despite DJI's promises that shipments for its new Mavic Pro drone were underway, very few drones have made their way to customers. Last week, we wrote about the shipping delays plaguing the drone. Hours after we published our story, DJI released a statement announcing that shipping had begun. But according to customer reports and leaked company communication, only a small fraction of the highly-anticipated $1699 UAVs on backorder have shipped.

Back in September, Apple promised us that AirPods would be released at the end of October. Well, it's the end of October. Where the hell are our AirPods? Not in your ears, that's for sure.
The HTC One, the beautiful beast of an Android phone, is delayed because suppliers no longer consider HTC a "tier one company". Component companies only seem to care about working with Apple and Samsung, which means that we're going to have to wait a little longer to get our hands on the best Android phone right now.
With the Opposition playing silly buggers in parliament at the end of last year, it was always going to be a tough ask for Telstra to meet the July 1 deadline of putting the NBN agreement to shareholders. This morning the company confirmed in a statement to the Stock Exchange that the negotiations wouldn't be completed in time for a vote this financial year.
Just because you ordered expedited shipping on that Apple TV doesn't necessarily mean you're going to get it on time. Apparently, several customers have gotten emails from Apple indicating a 2-3 week delay and offering a refund for the shipping charge.
If nothing else, Apple is a company that's exceptionally regular in its release schedule. We've seen new iPods every September/October for almost a decade, new iPhones announced each June and Mac refreshes almost every January. But as Gus over at Lifehacker points out, this regularity means that it's highly unlikely we'll see new iPhone 4's hitting Australian shelves this month.
Square, the super-cool payment system that lets you collect peoples' credit card dollars on your smart phone, is delayed indefinitely while the company tightens various infrastructural screws. CEO Jack Dorsey admits they rolled features out "before they were fully baked."
Citing "surprisingly strong US demand", Apple has delayed the international launch of the iPad by one month (preorders/pricing postponed to May). Huh, is a pile of 500,000 iPads really more than Apple expected to sell by this point?
Ooh, looks like somebody's popular. If you tried to order a Wi-Fi iPad this morning, you might have noticed that the expected ship date has been bumped a week to April 12 and in-store pick-up has been nixed as an option. Seems like the first pack o' Pads have all been spoken for. Just how many is that? There's no way to be sure, but some of the most recent estimates put the number somewhere near a half a million. Yow.
