Default Fuze SlotMusic Firmware Upgrade?

Hey All...

Just got an email from Sandisk "Newsflash" about a Slotmusic firmware upgrade for the Fuze and am wondering what its all about?. Correct me but wasn't Slotmusic added to the .26 firmware update?.

If not I'm wondering if I should get the update. My Fuze is working great so I'm just a little apprehensive about going through a potentially buggy firmware update?.

Has anyone else got this email or has heard of this new firmware upgrade?. Seems to have come from out-of-the-blue. Thanks!

Yeah, I got it too. It was indeed added with the last firmware, so why are we getting this email so late? I have no idea. There is actually no update, if you've already done the .26 update.

Maybe their time machine is out of order?

nevermind...I caught the video on the Sansa Fuze support page and the firmware being downloaded was 1.02.26. All is well again...

I got this email as well. I guess their marketing department is behind on sending out emails. Either that or they need to push SlotRadio more.

I think the money they spent coming up with the Slotmusic and SlotRadio ideas would have been better used supporting the Clip and Fuze, or working on their eventual replacements....I'd rather load my own microsdhc cards.

Could be that they were just announcing that their software engineers have been hard at work, sweating blood and tears getting the new slotradio (now showing on the fuze home screen in garish red) advertisement just perfect?
