Why Google's Software Update Tool Is Evil
When Google Earth 5 was released last week, the Mac OS X version of the free desktop application came with an auto-updater that was installed on users' machines. The update tool runs in the background and can't be easily disabled — a tactic other software makers have long known is a huge no-no, and one some users are hopping mad about.
