I know you don't hate the unit. People don't buy things they hate or return it if they discovery it sucks and they were a victim of clever marketing.
But there is a line between needing an update to fix a bug and an update to get more for your money. There is also the grey area, like digital TV, where a company can try to keep brand loyalty by giving away an update. I have three Sony DVRs that needed such a fix. I've also had a fix for a Panny DVD recorder, a Toshiba DVD and DVR recorder, my Sony 32XBR9, and we all know there is an update for the S360. Sometimes the update will include a feature that is standard on a higher priced or newer unit, sometimes not.
Color me stupid, but I'm always looking for newer models to get newer features. I have a serious case of "new cow" syndrome. The stuff in my attic is proof. Yet, I'm not perfect. I've had the same car for 16 years.
