U3

Some companies are smarter than other. U3 is not one of them. U3 provides technology to make an USB-memory stick to act as an CD-ROM. That may be be good or as other describes it; another way to distribute malware.

Anyway, my wife got a U3-enabled USB-stick from work. Curious as I am I wanted to disable the U3 part. I find U3:s uninstall page. It asked why I want to remove it. I selected the alternative that I run Mac or Linux and then took the download button. Guess what? I got a MS Windows program. So why does they provide me with an alternative "Mac or Linux"?
