The problem that SuperDuper! is not available immediately is as much or more an Apple issue than a ShirtPocket issue. The same problem exists with the iPod accessory market. It's the result of Apple and Steve Jobs' cloak and dagger method of product announcements. Nobody including the developers and suppliers know what the new product is until the rest of the world does.

This means that the announcement is starting the clock on everything including 3rd party applications, accessories, drivers, etc. Sure you can buy it today, but it's not really a mature product at that point. Even the developer previews aren't the same as the final product meaning that after the actual product ships the developers have to retest.

This is the ugly downside of the secrecy in product development. It's doing a bit of a disservice to the support community.
