I wonder how upset people would be if say Microsoft would do the same tactic.  What if in order to get a new version if IE you had to just buy it?  To get any new features added to windows you just had to buy the next version of windows.  I'm pretty sure people would be awfully outraged by that, but that's because we have been conditioned from the start to expect regular updates to the system and then every now and then upgrade to a new version by purchasing.

In fact I think cameras are the only device that comes to mind that uses software to control its primary functions that hardly ever comes out with improvements to it without buying a new model.
