Default Firmware update?

I'm just wondering what people think about any future firmware updates. I for one can't see a need for any. I have not experienced any problems with my S50 except recently where my My Channels have begun to degrade for no particular reason. I think a 3-finger salute is in order. Is this current firmware becoming unstable? Anything going on in the rumor mill regarding future firmware updates?

Forget about the firmware updates for the s50. Snake oil at best.

That's what I figured but I haven't seen a topic on them lately so I thought I would bring it up.

Kidding or any, even the smallest basis for hope?

It's always two weeks. Just call Support. It's in their training manual to inform the customer. Give them a glimmer of hope.

Warranty support has a different number 7-10 business days.

Good luck on your 3 finger. It should be as good as new after the refresh!

if we're being honest, I don't recall "bookmarking" ever being a documented feature.

It isn't one. That's the problem. Every other mp3 player remembers where you were when you turn it off. Kinda a pain in the butt when you're 45 minutes into an hour of Stern and you have to pause it.
