Google Update Becomes Open Source

Google Update is a small program included with all Google software, which quietly checks for and downloads updates in the background. Now, the source code has been released under an open source license, allowing anyone to view and use it. Google says that they are releasing the code to help developers, and to make Google Update completely transparent. Yup, it's just an updater, not a key device for world domination.
