thank you for the blog.
Today, while running my Activity Monitor, i noticed the GoogleSoftwareUpdateAgent. Was a bit shocked for this since i can’t remember anything about it, so i searched and found your blog.
Very informative. (ps i realized it was few days ago, when upgrading google earth, it did say something to the effect that it’ll install some updater or refuse to download the new version. i blindly ok’d it.)
for now, i just quit the updater, since i don’t restart my machine often. It might do some security update for google earth.
