The word FREE is one of the catchiest words in the English language – that’s why so many spammers use it I guess.
Google’s added to its “Google pack” of free software. What’s new:
Symantec Norton Security Scan: Get basic virus protection from a world leader in PC security. Security Scan features automatic security updates and scheduled scanning, all without a subscription fee.
PC Tools Spyware Doctor Starter Edition: This exclusive version of the award-winning anti-spyware and anti-malware utility includes scheduled scanning, threat removal, limited active protection and free automatic updates.
Google Photos Screensaver: Turn your screen into a digital picture frame that displays the latest photos from your friends, family, and favorite photographers. Show images from your computer, Picasaô Web Albums, or photo feeds from other photo-sharing sites.
What does this mean to you?
Of course there’s software you’ll need to buy, such as your standard business application software. However, being able to load up on several FREE, and useful utilities is a must.
Utilities I have include:
Audacity – for recording and editing sound files
Primo PDF – for making PDFs
Skype – making cheap phones calls over seas
Several graphics viewing programs and other tools I use from time to time.
Google Pack includes:
Google Earth – 3D Earth browser (I have this and it’s quite fund)
Google Desktop – Desktop companion (great search tool)
Picasa – Photo organizer (got it)
Google Photos Screensaver – Photo screensaver
There’s other software in the Google Pack. Try it out.
