Where did my updates go?

Hi all,

A curious thing happened to me just now. I just went into iTunes to check for any interesting app updates, and it appears that the existing pile that I hadn't downloaded have vanished into the internet ether

Has this happened to anyone else?

That happens once in a while. It seems to happen to Windows users more often from what I've seen. It happens to me all the time from the App Store app.

Yesterday, my downloads screen randomly reverted to the last pile of downloads I had a few days ago. I restarted iTunes and it worked fine(I use a Mac).

BTW, I'm moving this to the apps thread,since it's not about games specifically.

...good to know I'm not the only one. I'm also on a Mac, so I'll give the old restart technique a blast and see what happens...

It's not a mac or windows thing. The updates disappeared from my phone. They were there last night, then gone this morning. Sounds like an Apple server issue or something.

I've been away for awhile, but I'm back.

That happens to me very often. But only on the app store from my iPod.

I also noticed that, on windows vista, if I check for updates, iTunes becomes unresponsive. I then have to force quit and start a new session... It then works perfectly. But it's happened every day for quite some time now.
