Remember the $10 FastMac U-Socket that first turned up way back in December of 2009
and was then beset by a number of delays that most recently led to a promised October ship date and inflated $20 price tag
? Well, it didn't ship then either, but the company is now apparently telling customers that it's really, finally getting ready to ship the USB-equipped power socket sometime next month (despite a note on the company's website that still says it's shipping "mid-December"). Anyone ordering one now will apparently still have to wait a bit longer, though -- the company apparently only expects things to return to "normal" by February.
