I quite enjoyed the sneak peek at D'Arcy Norman's version of an iGoofgle-style home-made home page dashboard. "I set up a vintage 1997-style static homepage, but with some live data widgets powered by Feed2JS," he writes. iGoogle, meanwhile, if being killed as the companies continues to migrate everything to Google+. Norman writes, "I’m wondering why anyone would come to rely on any Google service. They have a history of killing services that have fallen out of grace with Google Corporate, even if there are still diehard users who have come to depend on them because they are free and Do No Evil."
