Great news. Those were some of my major complaints. WHEW Nintendo, about time! :)

great news indeed...
i found this part interesting though: "auto-receive updates without having to start up"

That implies that your system would need to be (wait for it)...always online.

I couldnt resist with all the "always online" rhetoric being thrown around. If your system is connected to the internet then your system is essentially always online. You may not be using it but it still means its connected and ready when you want to.

The freezing issue...yeah, had that happen to mine a couple of times. Hopefully its a fixable glitch and not something we continue to endure. IF MS has RROD then Nintendo has FSOD: Frozen system of doom.

I don't own a Wii U myself.. but these new options & tweaks in the new firmware are much needed features indeed.

Sounds good. Any improvements to the OS are welcome and allowing background tasks should be handy.

You should be happy you can claim prizes with your points. They dont need to give you points to claim prizes.

It specifically states " loading times when switching between applications or returning to the Wii U Menu." .. So I am assuming it is system wide improvement between apps and stuff also.
