Good thing it's a leap year. Apple promised to ship its Time Capsule wireless backup device in February and made that deadline by two days. Customers began receiving confirmation of shipments this morning. Unless they paid for next-day shipping, they won't actually get them until the first week of March — but that's just nitpicking. As for Apple Stores, they're missing the deadline: "We don't have them yet, but hopefully in the next few days, maybe over the weekend," a clerk in the Burlington, Mass. store told me. [Macworld]
