Question:
Do you need to agree to Google's TOS? If yes, what happens if you don't. If not, is it ethical?

I have seen a similar set up on a relative of mine's computer. As far as I know you have to agree to the ToS when you start using Google Desktop. I am not sure about Toolbar, and I don't think a homepage needs one.

Yes. you have to agree to ToS for the toolbar and google desktop if i recall correctly. I should have made a screenshot of the next screen. There was no way to exit this screen without going to then next screen and either excepting or declining the ToS.

I bought a shiny new Sony Vaio a couple of weeks ago here in the UK. There was no Google branded start up screen, but it came pre-loaded with Picasa, Google Desktop, Google Toolbar, and Google Earth.

Not that I'm complaining mind you.

I was setting up a friends Dell desktop a few weeks ago, and it bundles with Google Desktop.

Dell partnership?, Apple partnership (http://www.apple.com/pr/library/2006/aug/29bod.html)?

The future of google is?:
A) suitable for mac users, even if google has no picasa, gtalk etc....
B) suitable for pc users.
C) both.
D) none of them, get a gentoo.

;-p

Google probably wont bother with Picasa because of iPhoto and Gtalk because of iTalk

I do not trust Google. I hope they go out of business.

Hey,

I just bought a gateway. What came with gateway? Google Desktop with toolbar and a whole bunch of other crappy software.

Its not just dell that did the deal.

Interesting how Dell's Google page has a tab that takes you to.....Yahoo Music.

PS I'd like to see Google's personalized page look more like Dells- the royal blue and brushed silver looks much better IMO.
