    Default iGoogle ending!

    Just got the notice that iGoogle is dying next year.
    It's a sad day - been my homepage for years, and put so many other people onto it.

    Bummer.

    I am really going to miss igoogle when it ends. I wonder if there are any addons that create something similar to the Opera speed dial, but displaying live information?

    I love being able to (at a glance) check my email, calendar and RSS feeds.
    Intel Core i5-3470 CPU
    8GB DDR3 RAM
    1TB HDD
    AMD Radeon HD 6870 graphics card
    Enermax Tomahawk II 500W PSU
    Antec 300 case
    Win7 Pro (Action Pack :D)

    surprisingly quick even without an SSD

    I tried a few alternatives but none as handy as Igoogle. I have two html webpages on one side with Gmail, twitter, bookmarks and facebook widgets there also. I guess It's too early to be looking at alternatives as someone is bound to come up with something. Maybe like...whats it called...that other company...ummmm Yahoo was it ?
