Despite well-received demos at the NAB show in April and promises then to ship its long-awaited Tapestry holographic storage drives and media in May, InPhase Technologies has once again missed a delivery date and is now promising drives and media for December. Since the first promised delivery date was back in 2006, I'm not holding my breath.
