Starting today, Google Pack is available internationally in 16 countries and one former British protectorate (Hong Kong). The pack contains all the goodies you love, including Google Earth, Picasa, Google Toolbar, Firefox, Adobe Reader 7 and more.

The contents of Google Pack change for different countries.

For example, Google Pack in the United States consists of nine pieces of software plus four optional titles. But Australia's Google Pack doesn't include Google Earth or the Google Video player or Google Talk options. Brazil's Google Pack doesn't include Google Earth, the screensaver, Ad-Aware SE Personal, the Google Video player or Google Talk.

According to Google, the discrepancies are due only to the fact that not all software is available in each language. However, that doesn't explain the absence of the Google Video player or Google Talk, which may be restricted from other English-speaking countries.
