Sansa Updater is idiotic (please excuse my language)
Who in their right mind designs an updater application that runs ALL THE TIME as a background process? It hogs memory, clutters up the system tray, and is totally useless.
SanDisk, not all users are as dumb as you would believe them to be. There's nothing wrong with an .exe you start manually to update the firmware, then be done with it. The way it's done now is plain and simple moronic.
FWIW, I installed and uninstalled that horrible piece of garbage twice already to get the newest firmware for my Clip. What an unnecessary hassle...
