Net: Google Pack

May 10th, 2007 by Richy B. Leave a reply »


I’ve just realised I’ve never mentioned Google’s “Google Pack” – so why am I mentioning it now? Well, the other day I needed to upgrade my copy of Adobe Acrobat Reader: but the Adobe/Macromedia Site only give me a 56k download file (it should be more like 20Mb for the Acrobat PDF Reader) and various other download sites gave me the same…

However, the Google Pack includes Adobe PDF Reader, Norton Security Scan, Spyware Doctor, Google Photos Screensaver (which I’ve also installed), Firefox with the Google toolbar (which I already had installed), Picasa (for photos – and it’s fun finding all the photos you thought you had mislaid) and much more besides.

I very much recommend the Google Pack – if only all software was so easy to install and keep up to date (I just wish Google would include all of their software – such as Google Earth and Google Talk – as options in the Google Pack).

This post is over 6 months old.

This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.

This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.

Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".
