Here's the lo-down on the updater icon :)

The blue triangle means PBI updates are available, if its yellow, then 
there is a system update available. Right now the tray icon and the 
updater tool are two separate tools, the tray icon re-checks for updates 
every 12 hours I believe. If you apply an update, then right-click the 
tray icon and select "check for updates" it'll re-scan your system, 
check the server, and switch to a green checkmark indicating no updates 
available. I will look into a way to tie the two together, so after 
applying updates, the tray automatically "refreshes", but I haven't had 
a chance to do it just yet, still working on some other bugs at the moment.
