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.

The Software Update application on Mac OS X only does updates. It never presents any new software to install.

In contrast the equivalent app on Windows, which looks almost identical, pimps new software, selected by default to install.
