Viliv X70 sold out, more now available at the deal price: WTF?

Just read this on the Dynamism site:

Thank you to everyone for participating in our initial Viliv X70 launch event! Our first shipment (shipping on July 28th) has sold out.

However, we are extending this special offer to our next shipment, due to ship on August 11th. During this time period, all orders will receive the same special bonuses offered with the first shipment.

Not sure what to make of this. I know the first 400 S5’s sold out and another 500 were offered at the cheap price, but wasn’t this because of server issues due to the huge interest in the first sale? I mean that was sort of a deal to thank or apologise to customers.

But there were 777 X70’s offered, and they didn’t sell out on the first day. In fact it took a week or more. Then once sold out they offer the special bonus deal to the whole second shipment!? Way to make all of us who got up/stayed up late to get in on the first ultra special deal. If it’s just going to be offered as the package to anyone who buys one I feel like I’ve been had a little bit. Basically I’m not feeling special at all and will certainly take this into account if there’s ever another *Special* *Super* pre-order get in now *Deal* which comes with extras which aren’t actually extras and by the way you can get this deal anytime you want.

    It’s called marketing 🙂

    Seriously, I was kind of taken aback a little bit too.

    But this morning I received another one time only, act fast order. For an additional $20, you can upgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium. But you need to act fast, by July 15th!

    Dynamism has since changed their site so you have a period of time into next month to get the same deal: “We are currently running a campaign where every order through August 5th will receive one of the following pre-order specials.”
