The Clip+ is discontinued and therefore will not be receiving any new firmware updates. Yes, it would be nice to have a time display and many people have requested it in the past. Sandisk's answer was to include it in their latest player, the Clip Zip.
The only way to get it on the Clip+ model though is to install Rockbox, alternative 3rd-party open-source firmware and download a "theme" that has a time display on it already, or modify an existing theme yourself to incorporate it.

I'm not quite sure that "discontinued" is the word, as the Clip+ still is readily available in its different capacities and colors, new, at Amazon.com, newegg.com and Buy.com, among other places, even though the Clip Zip came out last Summer. Perhaps "followed by a later model" is a description.
