How long exactly?

"FastPoS was first found in March last year and has since been known for receiving pre-Christmas updates"

How exactly does "it had an update once" translate to "known for receiving pre-Christmas updates"? It's only been known about for less than two years, so it can't possibly be known for any trend involving years.

Also, it's fucking October. That is not "pre-Christmas". It's barely even pre-Halloween at this point, and Guy Fawkes isn't even getting a mention yet. Supermarkets may have completely lost their minds, but most things that happen in the significant portion of the year before December do not actually have anything to do with Christmas.
