FWIW, I don't think that's necessarily the fault of the "people," whether they be professional journalists or amateurs. You can't really tell from a demo unit at CES how far out the product actually is, and the language used by the PR flacks doesn't really clarify the situation. I just take whatever date they list and add about 12 months to it, that seems to work.
