    Please tell me there is a workaround to this problem.  I have the “new” marketplace, and these notifications are driving me insane!!!  In the “old” marketplace, I had the settings fixed for no notifications.  Any help out there would be appreciated.

    If you have the new version of market, go to manage applications and select market. From there you can uninstall the update, go back to the regular version and turn off the notifications.
