"The standby functions will now regularly connect to the Internet when the Wii U is powered down to check for available SpotPass data or software and system updates

Further improvements to overall system stability and software compatibility"

You're thinking of the PS3 firmware updates, this is the Wii U.

Mine's covered in dust, too. But only cause you don't need to move the console to use it. Even if I used it all day everyday it'd still have dust on it. Doesn't help that I'm not using it heaps, either...

It magically repels dust when its powered on you didn't know that? I kid I kid. I try to blow the dust off mine every couple of days. Gets pretty dusty in my house.

GET A SWIFFER DUSTER!!! All these people complaining about dust are some lazy ass mofo's. I dust off all my consoles once every 3 or 4 days. Otherwise my PS3, 360, Wii, Wii U, SNES, Genesis, Dreamcast, XBOX OG, GameCube, PS2, ect,ect would all be covered in dust, regardless if I played them or not.

Dang it. I'm at work, so can try it out till later. Stop teasing me. Just had my wife cut mine on and it said update ready. So sounds like mine updated in standby or last night b4 it shut down.
