I read that article and found the bit about returning the Gear rather surprising.
I daresay the US trading laws differ from the UK but over here the fact that the Gear "didn't do what you expected it to" would not be regarded as a valid reason to return it - if I bought a DVD player and was upset when I found it didn't play my old VHS tapes the shop staff would justifiably laugh at me.
Its also amazing that people will spend a large amount of cash on a high tech device without reading lots of reviews first.
