    I'm in work so I'll have to wait until I get home to install it, grr.

    From looking at that page it doesn't look like there are any new major features other than the genius playlist and repeating sms alerts.
    I wonder if they've hidden copy & paste in there somewhere though?

    FYI its 237.8MB update. Says it will fix 3G signal issues, let us have the option for it to auto wipe after 10 failed password attempts, etc, etc.
