Apple Update at the Y

Seen at the YMCA earlier today on one of the large flat-panel displays they've got running:

At least half the time I'm there elements of Windows (usually an error message and/or update prompts) occupy the screen. This is the first time Apple's Windows software update has appeared. I didn't even know Apple had a Windows Software Update app.

  1. Oh yeah. It looks and works exactly like the Mac OS X version.

    I guess that since there are enough Apple programs running on Windows, it makes sense to have a central updating program.

  2. It's one of those annoying apps that insist on auto-running on boot and always being run in the background, just like the Quicktime thingamabob of unknown purpose.

  3. That's gotta be the Glenwood Y - I see things like that all the time there.

    Unless it's not the Glenwood Y, which would mean that they've got another branch with that problem. I think it's pretty funny whenever I see it before going down into the weight room 🙂

  4. I've seen it come up in Windows XP under Parallels on my MBP a few times. It gets installed with iTunes, Quicktime, and/or Safari for Windows, all of which I have installed.

    BTW, it's weird having safari running both in OS X and Windows on the same machine 🙂

    Software Update for Windows is run using Windows Scheduler, not always in the background.
