So is it worth doing the firmware upgrade to get WiFi? I just bought one of these in a “white box” on a whim for my GF’s birthday at a MarketPro “Computer Show and Sale”. I think I paid too much, but I’m not going to quibble over $10, except this seems to have only 4GB instead of the 8GB he claimed. I didn’t know anything about the WiFi though. There didn’t seem to be any settings for it. Sounds like it might be cool. But if the Yahoo service was discontinued, there might not be anything there anymore?
$10 for a 4GB player with microSHDC support that can play videos as well is a REALLY good deal, IMO.
I guess whether upgrading the firmware is worth it depends on how much trouble it is for you, and how much you’ll enjoy the Yahoo music streams. Upgrading the firmware should be pretty easy, but different people may have different experiences.
If the Yahoo music service is discontinued, you’ll just lose the Yahoo music streams, and you’ll be back to where you were …
