Please add to this list for I may have left out or overlooked a failure or two:

BFL has failed much harder:

1. Announce ASIC preorders in JUNE 2012 and October delivery and fail to deliver.
2. Announce extended delivery date of November and fail to deliver.
3. Announce extended delivery date of December and fail to deliver.
4. Announce extended delivery date of January and fail to deliver.
5. Allow a dumbass to troll the community on BTCTALK if they disagree with BFL's statements and claimes.
6. Show up to CES with case with ONLY fans, power supply, and a $30,000 Nexus 7 device.
7. Troll your competition publicly on the forum and have a bitch slapping fight.
8. ?

Yeah, there was the whole FPGA disaster with the failing on delivery dates, promised hashing power and promised power usage.

Isn't tomorrow the day that Josh is due for an update on their phantom ASIC shipment?

Pretty much, though with "BFL_Jody" posting this two days ago, I'm not sure what to expect:

Quote
Well, it's later this week and no engineer has told me anything. So that's my excuse for not having an update. I think it's reasonable. (Reasonable for me not to post an update--unreasonable for the engineer not to give me one.)

Not to forget the origin of Inaba:

At first a seemingly "independent"  forum member, showing up willing to validate the company. And he happens to be "employed" by BFL at a later date.
To this date nobody exactly knows who he is or what his "tasks" are in relation to the company. (Besides insulting us)

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

I'm also waiting on an update from Avalon more so than BFL.

I'm actually concerned about the "Secret" they have for the people that get their miners.

Looks like BFL is going to fail at delivering in January as predicted: https://forums.butterflylabs.com/announcements/692-bfl-asic-status.html

To this date nobody exactly knows who he is or what his "tasks" are in relation to the company. (Besides insulting us)

I mostly remembered Inaba from an epic thread where he got ripped off (IMO) on an auction for use of a timeshare, then almost everyone piled on adding insult to injury.  I can only imagine how butt-hurt he must have felt.  I would not even blame him if he decided to 'get even' by demonstrating in convincing fashion what a bunch of idiots a fraction of  the community is for falling for the (likely) BFL scam.  Not to mention getting himself some pocket change in the process.

I think it was also Inaba who got harassed by Mt. Gox when he wanted to pull some funds out of BTC.  $25k or so IIRC.  One way or another, the guy seems to have been mining back in the mo-betta old days, and also seems to have a relatively good command of the technology.  Not a moron by any stretch.

Link?

But yes, he's a driven, ambitious, clever kid. That's not the problem. The problem is that he has no backbone. There is such a thing as "too driven" and "too ambitious". Diseases of adolescence.

Several minutes of efforts with the forum search function didn't produce any results.  If/when bitcointalk.org publishes database dumps I'll put more effort into such things.

BFL has been a scam all the way along, promising huge specs from something still in R&D of which the pre-orders are funding? Come on, blatant scam.
