Feel that hot breath on the back of your neck? That's the deadline for holiday shopping drawing closer, closer, ever closer. Panic not. Google will help. We've packaged all our software tools into a convenient holiday keepsake that fits nicely into a stocking or adds a festive touch to that new computer you're giving your beloved. It's absolutely free to download, free to install and free to use, so no mucking about with gift receipts. There's Google Desktop Search and the Picasa photo organizer and the Google Toolbar and the Google Deskbar -- a veritable cornucopia of time-saving Google products for the PC. And it's all yours for the giving with just one click. We've even provided festive gift certificates and handcrafted packaging artwork so you can burn your own gift CD. The Gift of Google is appropriate for all ages and connection speeds. Batteries not included.
