apple bundling| Comments
our friends at apple are starting to bundle more.
i visited a site that had a .mov file on it and for some reason i didn't have quicktime on my machine. could it be that annoying qttask.exe that is always running perhaps that made me remove that thing?
at any rate, i went to download it again and noticed that quicktime 7 is now bundled into itunes6. interesting, i thought. i don't want itunes, i want quicktime. i'm a fan of bundling when it makes sense...but this one didn't to me -- if apple has portions of it site that show interactive media and use a quicktime movie format, then they should supply a quicktime plugin only -- i don't need itunes to display an embedded MOV file on a web page!
but i did find the hidden page: quicktime standalone
