I know this is really the opposite of a great many people here and although it would have been nice to get the update for free...... at the time it wasn't offered for free and "to me" it's worth the $20. Puts flame suit on. I'm not saying everyone will like paying the $20 or the fact that apple won't back out of the $20 charge but to me I've paid a lot more for a lot less. I've got $60 worth of useless iPod touch cases that I bought when the touch came out just because it was all I could find at the time. Money doesn't grow on trees for me but I've paid more for things far less functional than this update. I've been using the news aps and am very happy.
