    In its furthering attempts to take over the world, Google has introduced the capability for users to create their own personalized home page:

    Google will start by offering content from the BBC, the New York Times, Slashdot, Wired, the Quote of the Day and the Word of the Day. The company also plans to let users add syndicated Web content from news sites and blogs via RSS, or really simple syndication, technology, said Marissa Mayer, who directs consumer Web products for Google.

    I think that it’s pretty interesting. I have it as my homepage for the moment, though only to see if I like it. I have the Gmail notifier and BBC News on the page. I hope the final version will be a lot more flexible. The only reason I have BBC News is so I can get the politics updates. It would be a lot better if you could choose to only have news from one section; be it general news, politics, sport, etc.

    Then all we need is to get the latest posts from GD.ie up there. :D

    Mayer confirmed that the company intends to eventually add advertisements to the page, but not for a several months.[/quote:44b33ca4a5]
