MyGoogle!?

It looks like Google are releasing something that sounds a lot like MyYahoo! that integrates a lot of their services onto a new personalized home page.

Initally planned for a June 30 launch, the new home page option, part of an internal project called “Fusion” aimed at better integrating Google’s various products, was pushed up for launch during Google’s “Factory Tour” for the press now taking place. As a result, universal RSS support is still a week opr two away. In the meantime, a few sources are getting a boost as the only news/info options beside Google News: Wired News, Slashdot, the New York Times, BBC News. Google exec Marissa Mayer, who introduced the product, said the company had been in touch with some news organizations about it and they are “quite pleased with it.” Users can see up to nine selections from each.

It’s pretty basic looking so far.

    What I’m waiting for is a slick, efficient Google calendar so I can keep my calendar online.

    Oh, and I still like the My Yahoo! interface better than what Google has to offer.

    It’s not even close to My Yahoo! yet, personally I dont use these type of services but the Google service has a very,very long way to go

    I’m waiting for MyGoogle to interface directly with MyBrain…

  5. I think the fact that it shows me my gmail stuff alongside other feeds says a lot. It won’t be long until it’s as customizable as google news. I never use these kinds of pages but this one looks promising.

    Microsoft START is also an under-the-radar attempt at this aggregator / portal approach. It hasn’t been announced yet, but here’s a link : http://www.start.com/2/default.aspx

    Nothing revolutionary here. I might use it, but Excite/Yahoo!/etc. did this in 1996.
