Re: When is the next firmware for the fuze coming out?

To clarify, yes the issue I have with the go list is that you have to stop and restart it to have new things show up.

 

I guess I'm just beginning to realize that what I took for granted as a no-brainer feature that all mp3 players should have, just isn't so important to other users.

 

Believer it or not, the last mp3 player I had before my fuze was an old Nomad Jukebox 3 and my first reaction to the fuze was utter disbelief that it didn't have this basic (and in my case most used) feature that my 5+ year old mp3 player had. Again, I've never used a ipod or such, but I'd always just assumed that any $100-ish mp3 these days had that good old "now playing" list that you could just keep adding stuff to.

 

I realize it's not a huge burden to have to stop and restart the list, but it's enough of a annoyance that I just don't ever use the go list because of it. The other factor is that it just doesn't work when you're using it to play music through a stereo at a party or get together and want to keep adding songs without disrupting the music.

if you want that feature then get a frickin ipod and leave us alone. I cant wait for the new firmware. maybe instead of calling it 1.01.22 or whatever give it a name like "The Evolution" and dont forget those new wallpaper colors like White, Black and Red.

I dont know what you know about the Fuze but all of those are seemingly doable. its not to much to request and there is no reason to say "Go away" when a reasonalbe request is made. The key thing here is this... YOU HAVE TO WAIT! Nothing is instant when it has to be developed writen and tested, so make your player work for now and be patient who knows what we will get in upcomming FWs


Nicely said CB.   I've stayed away (or rather just bit my tongue and kept silent) for a few days on the main fuze board simply because many posts have turned into "Romper Room"  (if your old enough to understand that reference....you're old).

 

Let's face it, there will never be a perfect player for all users, so you basically have to decide if the feature-set in the fuze is right for you.  Since I'm an "audio guy", that's all that is important to me, but I realize that for others all the other features, including video are equally important to them.

 

The bottom line is that I hope all this firmware tweaking doesn't load the player down with features I don't need; or worse yet, cause Sandisk to raise their prices....

And Shari Lewis with her sock-puppet 'Lambchop". Even in black & white, I could tell she was a smokin' redhead.

 

But . . . What about Cap't. Kangaroo?

Will that firmware have more ID3 tag display such as year, bitrate, comment, disc number, etc.?

 

Also do you know if the clip will be getting that type of update sometime in the future too?


  While (some of us) are making wish lists [ :-D ], I'd like:

 

subgenres and for the month/day/year (or day/month/year) to be displayed next to the time - at least as an option like how I was able to turn the time to military time. And to make it so that the volume can be changed using the Fuze when it's connected to one of the speaker-machines; currently, the volume buttons on the speaker have to be used which was not the case for older firmware versions.  While not important, if I had *any* option of background color, I would pick gray or metallic, or let a picture be used.  I have no clue as to the technology/programming needed for all this, however!
