I get the battery life thing (needing 3+ batteries to get through a day of filming is annoying), and their bugs were indeed stupid and annoying, but I never understand why people get mad when technology is updated yearly.
Updating technology every year is pretty standard in many fields because technology moves so fast and the features you can offer inside a certain size/weight changes greatly within 12 months.
GoPro already offers a 30 day money back guarantee if you buy direct from them, you can't really ask for more since they won't delay technology just because people bought the old model recently (and they've been discounting the GoPro 3 Blacks down to $329 for the last month+ as well).
