Scripting News: 1/6/2006 : After reading all the comments on Google's announcements today, Michael Gartenberg asked the question that was most on my mind. Where's the value for us? Why should we care about this, as Google goes after Apple and Microsoft.

The value is not in the pack. It's not in the individual packages. It's in Google Updater. A single package and version management system for Windows is actually a big thing and a big value add that Google can sell on to other companies.

Now about that pack. RealAudio? Norton Anti-Virus? Are they kidding? Perhaps what they should have done is sort out Macromedia and Java which are the two most used and most irritating collections of software to try and keep up to date.
