    No offence to the developer, but doesn't OS X already have most of this functionality in text shortcuts anyway? Try typing "omw" and you'll see what I mean.

    Seriously? A news for a minor bugfix update? Although it's a cool app, I would like to see more substantial news on MacRumors.

    I'd like to get in good enough with MR to get free publicity just for patching some bugs.

    I like seeing these just because I keep an informal running total in my head of how often existing applications are broken by new OSX/iOS versions (hint: it's quite often). And it reminds me why I don't immediately (or ever) upgrade Apple's operating systems. Even ignoring the backwards compatibility issues, it's been years since they made a new OS that was hands-down better than what it was replacing.

    So anyway, when the frequency of these types of articles dies down is how I know it's a reasonable time to finally upgrade a device/machine.
