    yeah, everytime you start up installer after a certain amount of time, around a few hours, it refreshes its sources. What that means is it looks at websites that contain ipod touch/iphone applications (sources) and it lists all of the available apps. So essentially, it automatically updates itself every few hours. You can also add more sources, from independant developers, to increase the selection of apps. Some of the best apps come from these independant sources, also called repositories. There are also updates to installer.app, but you wont see those very often. and you wont know the difference.
