I'm looking for websites, magazines, books, etc. that analyze newly released products and/or style trends. Sort of like the ID version of DesignObserver, if it exists. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Of the popular magazines I like Wired.

In the Netherlands we have Product Magazine which is closer to the industry and goes in depth about design process, user involvement and the production process, and provides great analyses.

As for websites I like Designboom, Dezeen and of course the Core77 website.

Yeah, I'm familiar with Wired, Designboom, and Dezeen, but they usually don't do much deeper analysis. Product Magazine looks cool, but I don't know a lick of Dutch!

On trends I like trendwatching.com. They have free newsletters full of good ideas.
For more in-depth writings you can also check out the proceedings of trending conferences.
Other fields like interaction design often also relate to product design - just check out the research topics.
TEI 2017 has just ended, also at Delft University they have lots of good writings about why certain products are a success backed by valid scientific data.
