IGoogle retiring in 16 months?


When I went to my homepage a few minutes ago (which happens to be iGoogle), there was a little yellow box saying this...

"iGoogle will not be available after November 1, 2013"

And when I saw this, I was COMPLETLEY shocked! I mean, I have been using iGoogle for YEARS now, and I don`t know what I am going to switch to now!

There will still be the regular Google, along with Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Finance, Google Docs, Google Bookmarks, and Google Tasks.

But I am still sad that iGoogle, is now coming to an end! It was the same thing that happened with Picnik, when it moved to iGoogle. But thankfully, there is a new replacement for Picnik, called "http://ribbet.com"

Google says that the reason it`s retiring is because "With modern apps that run on platforms like Chrome and Android, the need for something like iGoogle has eroded over time."

It`s a sad thing to see iGoogle go, but it`s not the end of the world for me. As long as there is still the Google search engine, I`M GOOD! :)

But the good thing is, we still have over a year left with iGoogle. And besides, we still have the search engine, so it won`t be too bad!

Anyways, now I have some questions for you guys...

1. Are you shocked that it`s closing down?
2. Did you use iGoogle alot?

Comment below if you have any questions, XO! :)
