Spyware

While trying to install the new version of Macromedia’s Flash Player (now known as the Shockwave Player for some reason), I was asked if I might like to install the Yahoo! toolbar. The option was “yes” by default.

While I use Yahoo! a lot, this does not make me happy.

Foistware, spyware, or any software installed in a misleading fashion is fundamentally wrong and undesirable within the IT community. Especially when it comes from someone who ought to be above such things.
