I tend to agree, this might
be the case. Not all symptoms are the same, but they seem to be related. Outright failure or serious disorder. I'm not suggesting this to be the case, but just like software manufacturers and bugs - some companies do ship their product with knowledge of existing problems. I think this has something to do with a company's stock and investors.
All things considered, if you were a company that was in the final stages of releasing a new product, but knew that a major problem existed - would you:
1) Stop/halt all distribution of the new product prior to or shortly after its release date, or:
2) Continue selling the product and deal with the issue later (if possible)
It's all about the $$/stock and forwardlooking numbers (on paper).
It happens with everything, even the lame automobile analogy given earlier (though autos have a more serious side = saftey, livelyhood)
