Google Pack & Yahoo! Go

Google announced Google Pack at CES 2006 today.
Absolutely fantastic...

It even comes with Norton Antivirus 2005 Special Edition
  • Protect your PC from viruses, worms and Trojan horses
  • Includes 6-month subscription to protection updates
Hey... no need for some Windows Antispyware or Windows Defender. Everyone should just download Google Pack.

But this seems to be a marketing ploy by Symantec. What happens after 6 months? Symantec is hoping that people will be dependent on the product and continue the subscription. Smart move. Funny that Norton Antivirus is actually a licensed product among the traditionally-free products.

Yahoo has posted CES pictures on Flickr (Yahoo! is using Flickr to post their photos there. [Free publicity])

Yahoo has also launched Yahoo! Go - "a new suite of products and services for your PC, mobile phone and even your TV."

Basically its 3 seperate by closely related products - Yahoo! Go Desktop, Yahoo! Go TV and Yahoo! Go Mobile. As of now, Yahoo! Go TV is not available for download.
