Amazon Fire TV Stick Starts Shipping Today

I don’t understand how this is already shipping? I went to order one when they were first announced and to get the Prime deal and when I added it to my cart it had a ship date of January 5th 2015 so I just cancelled the order as that’s just a  ridiculous amount of time to wait. Anyway, I just got this PR that says the Fire TV Stick is shipping today and they’re taking orders on a first come first serve basis, but still they’re still taking orders. If mine wasn’t going to ship until January I wonder when these will ship? Full PR below for you..



Amazon announced that Fire TV Stick, the fastest-selling Amazon device ever, started shipping today. Customers can order at; new orders will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
