I've been on Leopard for a couple of years and never even knew I had this option. So, while I cannot use your creation, I still want to thank you for educating me.

Downloading the Ipod Touch 3.1 software update (some 200MB) took about 40-odd minutes (I have a 8000/384kbps connection) and ran through iTunes. When it was finally done, I went to look for it in the Library/Updates folder only to find it glaringly absent. I was really quite excited when this was first posted, but now I'd have to wonder what exactly this Automator droplet is doing. Can't see any benefit over using Apple's Software Updater (OSX10.6.2).

This seems to have the potential to be wonderful (I can't imagine why Apple removed this, but I've missed it). But, I'm finding it VERY slow to download things. Is it only me?

Very efficient coding ;-) Many thanks! Nice to get updates for two computers by a single download. Saves some clicking around. thyx (Oh, and I'd say some people would try to get paid for this)

YES! Thank you! Why Apple ever deleted this option beats me, but I've sorely missed it. Looking forward to giving this s spin. :-)))
