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.

It's not. That's why I've harped on that often enough.

However, that does not make Apple's shenanigans right.

Because they are Apple, and that the distortion field is strong with them.

I agree that MS have done the same ( especially with WGA, which in my book is worst ). Apple have been bad, but that's not like they are pushing spyware on your computer ( I think itune/Safari already do that ).

I would say at least it's a bad PR move from Apple ( as it can happen a lot recently ), and can be corrected with better PR ( sorry, our bad one of our guy mistake the type of update it was, won't do it again).
