Is eWeek living on internet time?

eWeek has published a nice article describing Sun's new, low-cost RAID array: the Sun StorageTek ST2500 Low Cost Array.  This is an interesting new product that has broad appeal and will be a heck of a good box to run under ZFS.

But I'm worried about eWeek.  It seems that they've lost track of time.  Many of us have been running on internet time for most of our lives.  This quote makes me wonder if eWeek forgot to update their timezone data:

"The ZFS [the speedy Zeta[sic] file system, recently released to the open-source community by Sun] is very interesting, and people are looking at it," [Henry] Baltazar told eWeek.

I'm pretty sure Henry Baltazar is running on internet time, and provided a very nice quote.  But whoever added the editorial clarification at eWeek spelled Zettabyte wrong and is running on island timeZFS was released to the open-source community on June 14, 2005 - nearly 2 years ago in real time.  Even in real time, 2 years can hardly be considered "recent."  Sigh.
