First of all, 7 apps? I check for updates daily and have never had more than 2. Was Apple sitting on these? Could it have anything to do with the release of 2.1? I really hope iTunes 8 reworks the app updating and installation methods. 45 minutes to install a few megabytes of code is just plain ridic. And no, I am not talking about a backup...I have backups turned off. And I was installing via USB, not OTA. Apple could really learn something from Installer/Cydia. The entire time I was jailbroken on my 1st gen iPhone, the longest install for an app was *maybe* 2 minutes. Installing flippin' LEOPARD didn't take 45 minutes for crying out loud!
