    I know I do.

    Example: I'm checking my email. I see a little red badge. My stomach gets a little reaction. I open the app store. Sure enough, yes, there's an update. I can't click on "updates" fast enough to find out what app needs updating. It's a cool app like Beejive or Facebook. I can't click on update fast enough. Its downloaded, I open excitedly... and if its a good update, the world is okay again. Reddit just updated. It's awesome.

    Oh man.. anyone else get this excited? Maybe in the time that I was typing this, an update became available...

    Man,

    I didn't think that one could be so enthused...

    What I do like is the update all functionality, gets it done quickly...

    LOL! Maybe not quite as excited as you, but I do enjoy seeing that developers are at work improving their software. I keep hoping I'll see an update for apps that simply don't work on 3.0 or don't work properly. Guess I'll keep waiting!

    I enjoy that little red badge myself. This weekend was exciting for me, as it seemed like Apple opened the floodgates for updates - 17 in just a couple days! :)

    Guilty!
    I also get a slight tinge of disappointment when a couple of
    days go by without an update.

    What's a little confusing is when I know an update has been
    performed but it has not loaded into my iTunes page for download yet.

    Lol, funny thread. Yes, updates get me excited, more so OS X updates and iPhone software updates than app store ones, mind you :p

    I get more excited when there's a notification on my favorites list of pandorabox.

    I agree with that, but maybe something like Update selected because I don't want to upgrade my free AIM & get ads :(

    But I also get excited!

    Nope, I usually sigh and think "not another one!"

    Thankfully most of the updates are small, I wasn't impressed with having to download a 500+ MB Myst update the other day.

    Right now I am kinda excited. The only reason is because I know that more apps will be working better with 3.0 and not crashing as much. Otherwise, just another update to do.

    I agree. That one took forever and I can't really tell what the difference is now?

    I don't get quite as excited as that, but even when I get a lot like I did over the 4th weekend, I read through all their descriptions. I read through 27 last weekend lol. I like getting more free additions so when they add instead of just bug fixes yes it is exciting.

    I love updates, but I no longer get excited about them as I did before. Or actually I guess there is usually just one update that I just can't wait to get, and that's Pocket Informant's update at the moment (necessary bug fix and cool icon).
