Apple If you have Apple's QuickTime media player and/or iTunes installed on your Windows machine, you might want to keep an eye on apple's Software Update tool. Apple is once again using the update tool to push unwanted software onto users' machines without asking for permission.

Regardless what you think of the particular software, and you are definitely on the anti-Apple bandwagon lately, once again you have printed something rather misleading.

You state that Apple's software update tool on Windows is "push(ing) unwanted software onto user's machines without asking for permission".

Lies.

The user has to choose to install the software by clicking an install button following the software description.

I wish the people behind this website would stop defending Holwerda and listen to longtime OSNews readers, at least those of us who haven't already bailed. I am getting really sick of reading his partisan, unqualified contributions to this site.
