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.

Agreed. I've gone one step farther: given away my (very old) iPod and uninstalled all Apple software from my Windows machine. I don't like Apple's update policies, pricing policies, App Store policies, DRM policies, their collusion with AT&T, their poor handling of software and hardware defects, arbitrary restrictions (re: no unlocked or tethered iPhones, no multitasking for non-Apple apps, no replaceable batteries), etc., etc., etc., ad nauseum. Enough. If this is what it means to be "cool", then I'm ok with being uncool.
