Google and Dell Make a Deal to Include Software


The WSJ reports on the expansion of a previously revealed deal between Google and Dell.

Under a roughly three-year pact, Google, of Mountain View, Calif., would pay Dell to have its desktop software for searching the content of a user’s hard drive and emails, and a Web browser search toolbar installed on the computers, the people said. Dell would also set the default search engine for users to Google’s offering, one of the sources said.

I like Google a lot, but this does smack of hypocrisy that the company would try and prevent Microsoft from making MSN the default search engine for IE7, yet they make this deal.
