I dont know how widely known this is but I just figured it out and decided I would share it with you. I have my Software Update set to tell me when there is new updates available. For the past week or so I would always get the bluetooth update but I dont need it because I dont use bluetooth and dont plan on using bluetooth and I also got the iSight one today which I dont need. If you click once on the update that you dont need and push the delete key on your keyboard it will ask if you want to delete these types of Software Updates and then you can click yes. Just a tip I thought I would share with everyone.


Enjoy!

I believe that means you'll never receive bluetooth updates from now on.. which in my opinion.. is completely limiting yourself since you just might decide to use bluetooth in the future. The better way of doing it is just disabling that particular update. Which I believe you can do by selecting the update and going up to the menu.. look for "Disable this update" or something like that.. I've done all my updates otherwise I would just find out exactly what the command is But at least it gives you an idea of what to do. This will stop reminding that you need to update that particular update, but it will continue to check for that particular update in the future if there is a new version.

CheerS!

You can go into Preferences after hitting the delete button and tell it to do the updates that you have chosen not to do. But you can do it either way, its up to you.

Sure, you wait until AFTER I install the Bluetooth update (when I have no use for it) to tell me. :-)
