Google Pack

While most people have focused on the Google video service, I must say that I'm more impressed with Google Pack. It's a collection of software from Google and some of their partners. Users don't have to install all of the software. If the user already has a particular piece of software included in the pack, then it will be updated if there's a newer version in the pack. Included in Google Pack is:

Google Earth - 3d Earth Browser
Google Desktop - Desktop search engine and info toolbar
Google Toolbar for IE
Picasa - Google's excellent photo editor and organizer
Google Pack screensaver - use your own photos
Mozilla Firefox with Google Toolbar - the best browser out
Ad-Aware SE Personal - To combat spyware with
Norton Antivirus 2005 Special Edition - complete with 6 month subscription!
Adobe PDF reader 7.0

That's one helluva package for folks!
