I second this Bull$#!t...

It's just slimy ass-hat ripoff behavior and everyone should boycott any brand that tries a stunt this stupid. And don't even PRETEND to come with "Oh but it is the next in our existing numbering scheme" or "oh but it refers to a revision of blah blah" we all KNOW you are full of Shizznit and are just trying a quick filthy marketing scam Mr. Half-Rate advertiser man, And its offensive.
