Not so fast on

Looks like a squirrel took a bite out of the acorn.

Three months ago, announced its bold new venture. Today, it announced, not quite so fast. The big day, Monday, July 20th, has now been moved to Friday, July 24th.

This can't be good. You've been hyping this thing for months and now on the verge of the launch, you announce that the weather forecast is no good and you'll have to delay.

Probably better not launch if it was going to be a disaster, but you have to wonder what they have been doing for the past three months that leaves them unable to go. I'm blaming the captain of the ship.

Jim, don't be so hard on Capt. Acorn. When you're launching the first-ever interactive Web site in the history of mankind, there are bound to be issues.

What happens to all the news stories that were in the queue for Monday's launch? Won't they be a bit ... pungent ... by Friday?

Overpromise, underdeliver. No surprise. Spent too much time hyping the thing instead of working on it.
