Sneaky Apple


Since most everyone has iTunes, or some other Apple related product on their computer; you might have noticed something recently. I'm sure we've all seen this window pop up "New software is available from Apple". And we generally just look at this as a software update and hit install. But if you notice, Safari is one of those updates. Yes, it's not an update but a sneaky instillation of the Safari web browsers.

I recently unintentionally installed Safari, and besides not being impressed by it, I was a little irritated by the fact that they went through this method to get it on my computer. Imagine if Microsoft did something similar with it's Media Player or Zune updates. How many law suites do you think would have been filed against them? How many news stories or people throwing a fit on the internet would we find? Yet for some reason, I've seen no news on this, and little web traffic. Is it because Apple is everyones little darling, selling us the cute iPod with the ever so cool iPhone, and Microsoft is the corporate tyrant buying up most any company that stands in its way? Well, as far as this cranky blogger is concerned the only thing Apples are good for, is baking into pies.

Yea dude, I have Safari on my desktop and don't even know how it got there. I don't even know what it is.

Safari claims to be the fastest browser available, but I haven't been able to confirm because it always crashes.

I have it on my iPhone, but it sucks there because it doesn't display Flash.

Not impressed.

Yeah eccentri, now you know, and now you know how it got there. All thanks to the Monkey. Tell all your friends where to go to get updates on what's going on in the world of why Apple sucks.

And rooster, yep, I tried it for about two minutes since I unintentionally accepted the download, and wasn't impressed either.

Maybe if people were smart enough to read what actually pops up, it wouldnt happen.
