    When application updates are available, the app icon on the touch homepage has a number showing the number of apps that have an update. If you choose to update the apps, the number disappears. I avoid updating free apps because the updates often include advertisements that appear on the screen when the app (for example a game) is running. Is there a way of getting rid of the update notice (i.e., the number that appears on the app icon) without updating? Any help would be appreciated.

    nope. Ulness you don't mind jailbreaking, then I'd assume there's some plist you could repeatedly alter or delete.
