I can't find any info on an OSX process named AutomaticHelper.

What is it?

Why does it like to chew through CPU so much?


I believe it's part of Automatic, which is used for RSS-based downloading.

  • makes perfect sense. It's a shame the damn app is so CPU hungry. Must be a bug. thank you. – romant Oct 19 '09 at 5:35
