Software likely needs improvement

Canon has made some amazing digital cameras over the years, but it seems with each new generation the software they include with the cameras seems to get worse. For example, a camera we got in 2007 (SX 100-IS) came with software that automatically uploads all new pictures to folders by date as soon as you connect the USB cable. Simple, quick, and effective. The software that came with the pocket camera (A2300) we bought last year is TERRIBLE. So far as I can figure out it only lets you download new images one at a time. Don't know how this is "easier to use" than the prior software but it certainly looks like a step backward to me.

A quick search of "A2300 transfer photos" came up with instructions for how to download all photos or all non-transferred photos... Perhaps you had a PICNIC Error?
I generally just remove the SD card and transfer files that way, using 1 card per major event (vacation/wedding).
The whole "upload to Facebook before you have time to use better judgment" crowd has left me in the dust so I guess I am a dinosaur.
