Yes, but I didn't flutter my eyelashes!

I guess that means I can stop pressing "Update" every five minutes.

I dunno, sounds a bit more Voidy to me. Lifebound heroes have always impressed me as the silly social ones all about patting each other on the back ("Hey, thanks for joining in, brother!") where a Voidster would just as happily banish his own mother ("You are obsolete. Your purpose has been fulfilled.")

Will the update support retina for the new iPad, and will we have the option of choosing music from the different updates?
