Qa?

Simple QA would have found this bug before the last release.
Unless Apple knew about it but was waiting on a fix.
Seems like Apple's QA has gone down, among many other software in the industry. It's been a trend over the years. Not sure I like it, but it is what it is.
I do appreciate Apple releasing a fix fairly quickly.

What hanging issue? This is the first I've heard of it. I've never experienced it myself.
Have not experienced it either on my 13" Air, but they said the issue was with iTunes. I for one don't use iTunes much these days beyond the app store and syncing my iOS devices.

Anyone having issues with Wifi on their Air going down? Every 10-15 minutes my wifi will stop working and I have to disconnect and reconnect to it. Only started happening after 10.6.7 but I haven't seen any other complaints about it... maybe it's just a lemon.

I haven't, but my buddy who bought an MBA at launch, same as I did, has seen this off and on from the beginning. He's reinstalled, Apple's swapped out his wireless card and (IIRC) eventually his mainboard, and the problem has still manifested periodically regardless.

Thanks Macrumors!

I just read this and the issue started for me yesterday just after I hooked up a new iPad. Then iTunes would hang the whole Air. Glad I found this link.

Did the update and will do some testing.

Thanks again guys for telling me about I problem I was as of yet unaware of :D
