Says who? Sources. All of those rumors that Apple’s insanely thin all-in-one desktop would be delayed turn out to be false. In fact, the company’s plans as passed down from on high by CEO Tim Cook are still the plans. And, would you believe that OS X 10.9 will have tufted ears and be incredibly cute? Get ready to cuddle.

As of this writing the initial shipments of the 21-inch iMac are being delivered to distribution points around the US.
