European customs ordered to seize PlayStation shipments

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on February 28th, 2011

You might recall that Sony and LG have been at each other’s throats lately. It involves allegations of patent infringement. Now Sony has a major setback in Europe because of this. The civil court of justice in the Hague has just granted LG a preliminary injunction that will have all new PlayStation 3s imported into Europe confiscated by customs for at least ten days.

Bad news for European gamers who just imported a console for sure. They are already being stockpiled in warehouses and the injunction could be extended even further. That would lead to a shortage of PS3s on store shelves. Right now retailers generally have two to three weeks worth of stock on hand.

It hasn’t been easy lately for Notion Ink. Amid other delays, the company has now had to send out some emails to some Adam buyers informing them that delivery has been delayed to February 14th.

The problem is a shipment of damaged touchscreens, which will affect an estimated five percent of all orders. Touchscreen supplier Sintek has vowed to refill the problem stock. Hopefully things go smoother for Notion Ink after this.

According to insiders, Logitech has suddenly frozen shipments of its Revue box for over a month while waiting for a major Google TV revamp.

Production would apparently resume in February or March.

Why they would halt production for up to two months without a change in hardware is unknown.

IDC numbers show PC growth slows significantly in Q4 2008

Posted in IDC by Shane McGlaun on January 15th, 2009

IDC LogoResearch firm IDC has reported its numbers for the computer industry worldwide for Q4 2008. With the global economy down, the results of the numbers will not be a surprise to many consumers. Along with the numbers, the company also lists the top Pc makers globally and in America.

IDC reports that the global PC market shipments were down 0.4% on for the last quarter of 2008 compared to the previous year. Shipments were down by 2.5% compared to Q3 of 2008. It’s very odd to see shipments decline in Q4 when holiday shopping typically sees Q4 as one of the busiest of the year.
