Bad Apple. Evil, wicked, nasty Apple

Here's a post from John Lilly (CEO of Mozilla) on Apple's decision to have Safari hitch a ride on the iTunes updater, and I agree with him. If I want new software, I want to decide to install it.

Ultimately, the only thing they did wrong was turn the checkbox on by default, but it's a stupid thing to do. Sure I don't mind if you piggy back new software information on an old update and give me the option to download it if I want to, but don't give me the option to not download it if I don't want to.
