This is exactly the venue to unveil consumer-oriented (even gimmicky) products.
I don't understand the "upset" at all. And yet it happens every year. They announce products that are intended for someone else -- that meet someone else's needs very nicely -- and everyone else has to complain. It goes something like this:
"They announced the Powershot N. That's a toy! Where is my 7DII!?"
"They announced a 200-400/4 IS zoom. That's for pro sports and wildlife photographers! Where is my 50/1.4 with IS!?"
"They announced a new printer/copier. Oh crap, it's a printer/copier! Where is my 12-24/2.8L!?"
Why don't people realize that the day they announce the exact thing you wanted is the day when thousands of other people will be awaiting something completely different? Not every announcement is going to fill your personal sweet spot for the thing you need to be new that month.
I look at at and think:
2)-It's not for me
3)-Bet it sells like hotcakes
4)-Hotcakes.... maple syrup.... mmmmm...... think I'll go make something to eat
