Software update

Got a digital radio? Does it have a USB connector on the back? There might be a software upgrade available for it.

I've just upgraded my Tempus-1. The update was published six months ago but I've only just thought about checking to see whether one was available. It's a great release, extending the functionality of the radio to address all the (minor) gripes I've ever heard about the product.

It'd be interesting to discover what the uptake rate is for such upgrades. There's no real precedent for updating devices like this. It's great to see bug fixes being published but I suspect manufacturers will have to devise a better way of publicising upgrades if they're to be picked up by the majority of owners.
