They should have stuck with the "when it's ready" response instead of
telling us the "5th or 6th", then "Monday night". They created greater
anticipation by suggesting an actual time line. And greater
frustration by missing it. "When it's ready" always worked for me in
the past, but since they gave a date this time, I've been obsessively
checking the mirrors looking for the release. It's human nature.
