To me, in an announcement meant for a global audience, not giving a time zone implies inconsideration. Not a lot, of course, but enough to be disappointing.
I always assume the default in such announcements is UTC. I'm reading this at about 08:00 UTC, so was excited that I'd learn the secret in an hour. From the comments I learn that the time zone actually is US/Pacific time, so I'll have to wait 8 hours, not one.
I'm an instant gratification junkie. I was promised a hit and then denied it. This little time zone detail is enough to turn me from excited to sour.
