Time Machine malfunction throws TechCrunch reviewer into wormhole

TechCrunch writer Duncan Riley deems Apple's new operating system "worth the wait." Does he mean the product's four-month shipping delay, or the several hours it took him to install and then recover from this fiasco?

If Time Machine hasn't made a backup yet to visit, clicking the Time Machine button completely borks OSX...least it did for me. It took me a number of restarts and some serious banging of the keyboard (no CTRL+ALT+DELETE on a Mac) to fix it.
