Rumor: myTouch image suggests Android Market will auto-update in Android 2.2?

The talented folks at 4chan are infamous for their ability to track down information on people, and some of that ingenuity has been applied to discover something virtually every Android user has been hoping for: an auto-updater/update all solution for the Android Market.

Few things are as annoying as having to update 10 apps one-by-one, so a solution to update multiple apps is long overdue. Based on a few images posted by a user on 4chan, the next update to the Android Market could include an option to “allow automatic updating” for some applications. 4chan members have a reputation for jokes and pranks, and this image could just suggest that the Google apps will be able to auto-update (I personally doubt that), so there’s no guarantee that this will happen. But we can hope and believe. Could it be that Google actually started listening to what we’ve been requesting?
