Hardware blamed for Netflix delays

From Times Wire Services

Netflix Inc. is blaming a faulty piece of computer hardware for a breakdown that delayed millions of shipments to the online DVD rental service's customers this month.

"We've taken steps to fortify our shipping system with the acquisition of additional equipment and worked with our vendors to verify we're in good shape elsewhere," technology chief Mike Osier wrote on Netflix's website.
