Dell prepares to use Google software package

Dell is currently testing a software package from Google that will eventually be pre-installed on Dell machines. The software from Google (which includes a Google-powered Dell home page, Google desktop search and a Google Toolbar) will eventually find its way on to as many as 100 million Dell PCs. The news saw the price of Google's shares fall overnight, amid fears that signing major deals with PC manufacturers would see Google's cost of acquiring new users increase dramatically.
