So sorry, Sony: LocationFree hits a roadblock

Release date of TV box pushed back.

If you ordered one of these, it ain't coming next week.

Chalk up one point to Slingbox . The gadget gurus at Gizmodo are reporting that the LF-BOX1 LocationFree TV Box, part of Sony's place-shifting line, has had its release date pushed back. The big ouch: It was supposed to be released next week. No word yet on whether the LocationFree " base stations ," also slated for a late-October release, have hit setbacks--the Washington Post story quoted by Gizmodo seems to indicate that it may just be the TV box.

Chin up, Sony. These things happen, as you well know from all those PS3 delays. And you're not alone; I hear there's this little piece of software named "Vista" that might like to commiserate.
