That is a related to balance.
Geeks will angst more about some specifications, I agree with you that you would get an unbalanced perspective.
The Geeks will spot details that you did not spot, a customer would not spot, so you should balance a community response with random consumer response. Combined this gives you a powerful feedback loop to give you a competitive advantage.
I have been consuming what you now call gadgets for over 30 years, and it has always been the case that:
- the thing you can predict is the unpredictability
- the constant is change
That gives one a humility, that oneself is highly likely wrong most of the time about most things, but if you use your physical attributes in the balance you were born with, of two ears, one mouth and a big brain, so listen then think then speak, is probably less wrong in the long term.
So, Anker, given you know FCC will be posting a product, you know you did not give ask for confidentiality, you know folks like me will spot it, so why not just announce here, with more clarity. I get the fact that products change, if you did not change you would make less good products, but.... really.... I am announcing your product before you are.... really?
