I’m unable to connect to your Podcasts, is there a problem with the server?

I don’t see any problems – are you getting an error message?

Google Pack. Isn a great idea. One of the most difficult things for windows users is to find software and install it. By tying themselves to products like ad aware and norton, google is positioning themselves as a basic software repository for windows users. I think an apt or synaptic like product could be a big winner for windows users, and could be a revenue earner if it provided simple, one click installation of essential software and security updates and bug fixes not provided by M$.

Google Pack i have found a great piece of software for non Computer orientated minds.

Adaware, Norton, Firefox, etc can be installed and updated in one central location.

In reality Google Pack is the Windows Update
for essential 3rd party tools.

Or can be compared to
RPMDrake or Yast2
install and update software in one location.

Great podcast as always! I for one appreciate the straight forward presentation of topics and the language you use (clean) which allows me to play it where ever I may be.

Keep up the great work!
