Take it with a grain of salt, but according to Neowin Forums Google has been taking a little break, and that is why shipments have been so slow. If you keep track of the twitter stream, you’ll see a dramatic slowdown in the amount of joyous tweets of people receiving the “Google Gift”. Well, according to the forums this is the reason:

Google has been mostly shutdown for the past week and a half, so no shipments
have gone out. and probably will not start till next week, and due to the backlog
may take a while to get orders processed..

Now, I don’t know if its true or not, but I am inclined to believe it, because I have not heard a single tweet from anyone that has received one as a business. Now either no one who ordered one as a business got one, or the people who did don’t tweet. Now, I doubt the latter, but I would assume that Google would send some, or a lot to businesses. Since this has yet to happen, I can only assume that they will pick up the slack and start shipping more, but until they do, we are waiting on pins and needles.
