Roku batteries

I bought a Roku 2 some time ago. Installed Roksbox and the wife is very happy and the NAS becomes more useful. All is good. Noticed a couple of days ago that a battery icon flashed very briefly while starting up. Thought nothing of it. I just got an email.
“Tips from Roku: Replacing batteries in your remote”. So that too is being tracked? After all, they cannot know what batteries are in it can they?

This is odd:

When inserting the included batteries, be sure to insert each battery, negative (-) side first, pushing into the coil and then into the compartment. Never insert batteries positive side first.

What? If they have built a device that can be killed by this then they’ve done it wrong surely.
