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.

But MS update *does* push software. It pushed DotNet, it pushed IE7 and I even saw it push IE8 on recently on a server. I didn't ask for "Genuine advantage" either, which is far worse than anything Apple has pushed.

true. However, Microsoft does not have the weight of expectations to deal with. People usually expect the worst from microsoft (not that it isn't deserved).
