    You can turn off backups for every-time.

    Itunes > Preferences> Syncing> disable automatic backups, and only backup when you like.

    iTunes is backing up all your installed applications. Just x out of it if you know that your backup of apps is current.

    Thank you for the tip..... worked like a charm! Didn't even think to look in the preferences. Was thinking it was something new and couldn't be turned off. LOL... thanks again.

    Syncing is not the same as backing up

    In preferences, it asks if you want to disable automatic syncing not automatic backups. I, without backing up, want to sync multiple times per day. Yes, I know you can hit the x, but after doing so, I have had problems with syncing (as in not syncing).
