I don't get too carried away with updated versions. For the most part, the sole intention is to break JBs and it seems a great % of users can't help themselves and grab the updates....although there's not usually too long a wait before a "fix" comes along

I'll definitely wind up updating my iPad; it's rather behind (compared to the other iDevices) in the feature set.

My iPod, on the other hand... I think I can resist an update for it.

Nevertheless, I immensely hate that Apple decided to change the rotation switch's behavior to that of the mute switch. Nobody likes it (sounds like even renowned Apple fanboy John Gruber is displeased), but Apple insists on the change. Oh well, it's yet another reason to jailbreak (when a tweak to undo the change comes out, that is)!

I'm going to update too, but first, I'm going to wait for something to untether the jailbreak. Wonder if Activator can fix the rotation lock thing...

    I think Nintendo should not have planned on doing the CD add in for the SNES, but instead should have planned it for the N64. The N64 would have made better use of it like those 3rd party add on like dr v64, and cd64
