Creative does a 180 on FM recording

Last month, Creative drew the ire of many Zen owners with the release of a firmware update that disabled FM radio recording. Although no one that heavily used the feature was likely to download and install the firmware update, Creative also announced that future players would also have FM recording removed.

The RIAA was of course cited as the main reason behind the move by Creative as the organization has become quite litigation-happy in recent years.

Apparently, Creative has had a change of heart and has released a new firmware update which re-enables FM recording on its Zen Vision: M player. A single line in the readme file of firmware version 1.60.01 reads "Adds FM recording (for players with current firmware version 1.50.02 or 1.51.02)."

There was no reason cited for adding FM recording back into the fold, but Zen Vision: M users can consider themselves safe... for now.

I was under the impression they had ONLY removed FM Recording, not the Microphone. Then again, I never installed the new firmware, and I doubt anyone else did. Maybe Creative reinstated it because no one downloaded the new firmware?
