Im calling it now, the ASIC scams will total a value larger then the pirate heist.

They have ~$1million in sales so far for the jalepeno alone, so it would be a huge scam. The difference is people paid with credit cards/paypal that leaves a paper trail (and can be charge-backed). The consensus, I've seen, is that they are real and will ship - just later than projected and possibly lower spec than quoted.

Want to bet on it?  I'll bet 50 BTC to your 50 BTC that BFL delivers an ASIC product.

That's too broad of a statement to bet against.

They might deliver "something" after a long wait and much rage, but it will be nowhere near the specs listed on the sales page. (which in itself will cause a shitstorm like no other on these forums)

It's a huge scam even if they are legit. Why? Because the first deliveries will be the only ones to ever turn a profit on their mining.

Alright then, what terms would you like to add to the bet?

Something like:

BFL will deliver an SC Single capable of producing at least 20GH/s, a Jalepeno capable of producing at least 1.75GH/s, and a mini-rig capable of producing at least 500GH/s.

Put a time component on that.  Say November 15th comes and not a single person has a BFL ASIC in their hands, that wouldn't be surprising.  But days, weeks or maybe several months later and they might deliver.  

Here's a bet right now about 25:1 odds saying they do deliver, as stated, by mid-2013:

Seeing that the landing page mentioned earlier in the thread was never posted to the public by BFL, I'm sure it's simple an experimental construction page with place holder images.
