No, it's delayed. They say it will only take 2 extra weeks. Something wrong with the flux capacitor or something.

2 Extra weeks? That's like one week and 7 days.

Yeah, 2 weeks is worth the wait considering I can just use my time machine to warp me back.

I call it "the butterfly effect", perhaps I should suggest it in the terminology thread.

I think if it were a scam, who needs to "run away" when you can just build a space ship and fly away to another galaxy.

Buy with Paypal. If they dont deliver within 44 days, dispute the transaction and get your money back.

You'll know when they ship because difficulty will sharply increase. Then everyone who wants to mine will need one to compete. Or they dont ship and things continue as they do today.
or all the bitcoins will already have been mined.
hahahaha, you are funny. Don't say you really think that to be true...

I don't know. Other than the lost opportunity cost, I'm a disinterested spectator. As long as there isn't a popcorn shortage, I'm good.

After seeing that many people have had concerns with BFL in not delivering to their dates, I made a choice in surrendering my pre-order and I opened a case with paypal for a refund with BFL for a Jalapeno that I made in February. After seeing that:

a) Shipment dates are constantly delayed - a big tell tale that there is something fishy going on.
b) There is no product to sell, just a prototype developed after almost a year.
c) I did not get a reply on an email I sent which I asked about definitive shipment dates and information on the new power requirements.

If BFL was to ask for pre-order money, I would have accepted the fact in getting a pre-order confirmation without the need of paying until the product is ready to ship. This is the same treatment I got when I pre-ordered some smart watches that costs more than a jalapeno and these come from the US and Canada.

After getting my refund notice, I noticed that I did not get 100% refund, there is an adjustment fee applied of $5 which is enough of a rip off. Has anyone noticed this adjustment fee?

In a nutshell
==========

Until I don't see an ASIC mining product that is available for immediate shipping, I will not pre-order. It seems that ASIC technology for now is looking like vapour for the mainstream consumer.

I pre-ordered to give BFL the benefit of the doubt. But since I pre-ordered with Paypal, you get a refund; at least most of it. I would have never pre-ordered anything with some type of guarantee.

In my opinion, it is more than likely a huge mistake to back out of existing pre-orders. One would lose their place in the shipping queue and re-ordering is sure to be a nightmare of a wait-time!

Any online order is basically a gamble as to whether you actually receive it or not. If there is concern, then order the product with a medium in which the money may be claimed back in case of a scam or incompetence, such as PP or a credit card, not BTC...
