Genuine Widget Advantage

Speaking of things that report back to their company of origin without telling you or furnishing a way to shut it off Apple is apparently doing the same thing with a script that checks up on whether the widgets running are the most recent version. I'd known about this for a couple of days due to the fact that I run Little Snitch religiously and disable network applications by default. I enabled it pretty much without thinking since the word widget was included in all of the server names. Unlike the Win32 spyware I have yet to see it mess up system performance or render my machine useless but it is annoying nonetheless.

  1. Another reason why I hate widgets and have done everything I can to kill them.

    Widgets kill the G4… widgets bad.
