Photo diaries from travels around our humble globe are still being posted; the unemployment diary has been downsized as i am now employed! I hope to post stuff to keep you distracted from your respective employment.

The Google Pack


Another Day, another Google invention that totally impresses me.

Actually this isn't really an invention of anything new, but rather putting everything a PC user needs in one place at one download. Welcom to the GOOGLE PACK

In a single download and install you get:
Norton Antivirus
Ad-Aware Personal Edition (the best anti-spyware)
Picassa (the best photo manager)
Google Earth (Formerly Keyhole Software)
Firefox with Google Toolbar (in my opinion, the best web browser)
Adobe Reader
... and a few others...

I've got just about all of these running on my machine already, but it's great to have them in one place, from one download - it will make setting up a new machine very much faster and easier. than telling your Uncle Leo one by one the things he needs to get for his PC

Update: After running the thing, i discover - whoa, it's like STEAM for apps. Monitors them, installs them, updates them automatically. That's cool.
