Here are some of the quick simple ones.

Way back in 2012, Google gave all users of their iGoogle homepage notice that the service would be discontinued in Nove 2013. And here it is, Oct 2013, with only a couple weeks left to figure out what this means.

If you don’t use iGoogle, that’s ok. It was jjust something that put all your things of interest on one page. Many others have similar pages, like Yahoo’s, and perhaps whatever Microsoft is calling their web services this year… MSN?, Live?, MShome?, Bing?, or is it now going to be

The main thing was that it was a way to have everything at your fingertips when you open up your browser, and it was popular. But Google tends to see things before many others, and while we may not agree with them, their view is that most of us are using our mobile devices for this ‘info where we want it’. And, if you look at your phone or tablet, do you not get your news, email, social updates, stock updates, weather, and anything else you can find an ‘app’ for?  If you don’t, then you might want to adjust your view of what that ‘phone’ is… it’s not a phone, it’s a communication device.
