Apple Trying To Push Safari On All iPod Users

SeenoevilhearnoevilsaynoevilApple was being quite evil over the past few weeks. I guess they don’t have Google’s “Don’t Be Evil” mantra. They have been trying to push Safari as an “update” to any user who had iTunes installed. I guess Safari is now an update.

The crazy part is that if Microsoft tried doing such a thing people would be up in arms. I guess that is where Slashdot gets its fuel for its “Wrath Of The Apple Tribe” rant. I wonder if we have an Wrath Of The RIM Tribe?

The articles linked above are some pretty good reading. Just thought we would share…

  1. It IS a ludicrous “update” for iTunes, but the update tool does blatantly list Safari as an item which can be deselected from the update process.

    If you’re just going to blindly install updates, some might say you get what you deserve.

    OTOH, it IS just a browser. We’re not talking about evil spyware secretly installed behind the scenes…

  2. As I said two sides of the same coin. While it may not be a evil piece of software it is still trying to slip something under the radar. Almost like microsoft slipping silverlight in windows update… 🙂

  3. The gist of this story is that we should never trust default options from any company whatsoever. Such is the relationship we have with companies these days: besides parting with money, we have to be constantly looking over our shoulder whenever we do business with them.

  4. I don’t know what the hubbub is all about. It seems like everybody does this. Firefox, Adobe, MS, Apple. Like Dnszero said, it’s an option you can deselect. I don’t think anybody is really getting fooled here.

    I didn’t know about the update because I autumatically updated it as soon as I knew it was available. I was already running the beta. It’s a great browser and I don’t see why not try something a little different.
