Finally! PS3 Firmware 3.72 arrives, changes everything

Finally, the PS3 firmware update you've all been waiting for! Next time you fire up your PlayStation 3, you'll be rewarded with a system software update -- version 3.72, to be exact -- which delivers "system stability during use of PS3 format software" as well as "improved" network services. And ... that's it!

The good news: It's only a 10-minute update. The bad news: It comes less than six weeks after the last one. Anyone else get the feeling these constant updates are an attempt to convince us to upgrade to PlayStation Plus, if only for the Automatic Update?
