Whenever Apple releases a software update, a badge like that shows on your desktop
Apple just gives you an alternative with two option (install now – install later), but what if you are content with your current version? No “no” button to push, no “close” cross-hair to click, no “dismiss” gesture to perform. Sure, you can ignore the message and carry on, disable the auto-update feature etc., but the point is that – at a glance – you’re not given a full list of possibility.
This is freedom, the Apple Way: do whatever you want as soon as you pick one of the option we lay down for you.
This is the “Walled Garden” strategy that sound oddly familiar to Noam Chomsky‘s prop-agenda theory…
