Submission + - Is this the worst ever Christmas for gadgets?

An anonymous reader writes: CNET says this will be the most dissapointing Christmas ever for gadget-lovers. The Playstation 3 is delayed across most of the world, the Zune MP3 player is cancelled for everyone outside the US, Vista won't be out for home users before the big day, and even Final Fantasy XII won't reach Europe in time. From the article: "It's enough to make you slit your wrists with the shards of a smashed Christmas tree bauble... Santa fails to deliver on almost all of his Yuletide promises. Most of the major technologies that were supposed to be ready for purchase have been delayed until next year." The writer goes on to suggest phrases to use over Christmas dinner when the offending companies products are mentioned. To reduce the pain of a Zune-less party, he suggests remarking: "Imagine the stability and usability of Windows migrated to an MP3 player. In short, imagine a small portable version of Hell."
