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.

I find it somewhat comical that while Apple really put a lot of focus on a UI that is pleasing, they consisently fail at providing a "non evil" (google term) experience.

I didn't appreciate when apple decided that Safari should come along with Quicktime. In fact, I didn't want quicktime when I installed Itunes. I have since removed every trace of apple software from my pc.

Apple software fits the definition of a virus infection - not only does it install unwanted software, it re-installs itself. It drains PC's of horsepower with unwanted services that don't even make sense (Phone services when you don't even know if I have a phone?).

Good hardware, low respect for their customers.

Now only if I could get my own reality distortion field like Steve..
