So, igoogle is going. Damn it! Apparently the reason is that not enough people used it, and er, you can get themes on chrome. So that's alright then. Except that: what if you are one of those people who use the damn thing? I don't have an android phone, i have a blackberry. I also use at least two different computers in the course of a day, my work pc and my netbook. Do i want to have to install 'apps' on both of them to be able to access what i used to via a simple browser? Not particularly. I'm not really an 'apps' kind of girl.
Anyway google, i though we were supposed to be doing everything in the browser now? Isn't that the idea behind chrome OS? Ok, its your company and its a free service* you can do what you want, but seriously? I had my google homepage set up just as i liked it, i use it mainly for RSS feeds anyway. I like the fact that i can be logged into my email, and then go straight to a page that's got a list of updates of all my favourite blogs and news feeds.
An android weather app ain't gonna cut it. Bad choice, google...
*subject to all those yummy metrics that actually make google their money
