Ok, I’m being sensationalist, but you’re downloading “spore” and the “EA Download Manager” you are forced to install to download your digital download goes ahead and makes itself part of your system startup without asking.
Also, if you decide to buy the digital download, be aware it will sneakily charge you $5.99 for “Extended Download Service”, whereupon they will keep the file for 6 months for you! There’s a tiny little trash can icon next to the quantity – carefully made very plain and not very icony unlike other icons on the same page.
Apparently the spore creator demo requires you to leave the download manager installed. Grr.
