When I got home today, I do what I usually do: turn on this stupid computer, get the iPod out of my pocket, and get it to charge/sync with iTunes. Anyone who owns one of said devices knows that when its syncing, the screen will show you if your firmware ("iPod software" as Apple will say) is up to date and will check again at a certain date. Of course, you could force it to check right now, and what usually happens when you do so if that if it doesn't find one, it will refresh the "I'll check myself" date for a week later.

What are you saying here, Steve? A new firmware update tomorrow? Looks like your own software's just spilt the beans. Thank you.
