No Apple TV delays
Apple has confirmed that it expects to ship Apple TV later this month, despite a few high profile published rumors to the contrary. The company today reiterated that it is on track to ship the set-top device for streaming video content to televisions by the end February as originally promised. "We're still planning to release Apple TV in February, as announced" an Apple spokesperson told vnunet.com. Unsubstantiated rumors of delay began after a rumor site ThinkSecret said that Apple's internal plans involved holding the Apple TV back until March. The report said that a salesman with the Apple Store confirmed that any advance orders would ship in February, but cautioned, however, that the units may not reach consumers' doorsteps until March. Apple's online store still indicates a February ship date for all new orders.
