Alert: Sansa Fuze now plays FLAC


You know what the $100 Sansa Fuze does that the $150 iPod nano doesn’t? It plays FLAC and OGG, now that SanDisk has released updated firmware for the little player. (Apple Lossless is cool and all, but trying finding—wink-wink—albums encoded with it online.)

The updated firmware, version 1.01.05 (yeesh, user-friendly numbering convention right there), also includes the usual bug fixes, as well as support for Audible’s AAX file format.
