    Is anyone else having this problem? I usually get 1 MB/s from Apple Software Update downloads, but tonight am getting 100 kb/s max.. sometimes even slower.

    Are manual downloads from their site going at full speed? :)

    Yeah, they seem to be marginally better. But not like usual. Maybe they're getting slammed from all the recent announcements etc.. I might try when the rest of the world is asleep.

    Apple software updates R-E-A-L-L-Y SLOW!

    Sometimes my download icon on the dashboard jumps up and down and indicates I need to do a software update.

    When I do this, the download is rediculously slow. So I turn off the computer and forget about it.

    Has anyone ever waited to see just how long it takes for a software download?

    At the rate mine is going (and I have cox high speed connection) it will be like 10 hours!

    Any advice will be appreciated. I might be heading to the Apple Store cause my battery isn't lasting very long unconnected.
