Bad Apple

iTunes: Apple’s New Spyware and Adware Application?

Apple has overstepped its limits, and this spyware (because it sends information to a server) and adware (because it displays information to attempt to sell you products) is a very serious breach of the trust I have long had in Apple’s products.

Keep in mind we’re talking about a company that gives you no choice in trying to install a background QuickTime process on your (Windows) machine and tries to reenable it every time you run QuickTime. This doesn’t surprise me a bit.
