Apple Safari iTunes Dubious “Upgrade”

News.com reported (“Apple pushes Safari on Windows via iTunes updater“) Apple’s sneaky attempt to increase it’s Safari web browser Windows install base. It accomplished this by adding Safari as as a default component of the iTunes software update.

 (Apple)

I think it is would be reasonable for Apple to offer an update for people with Safari installed. However to try and install unrelated software as a blatant abuse of the customer’s trust and lack of respect for the customers.
