As part of its ‘Spring cleaning’ Google will be retiring the iGoogle interface which allows you to add various gadgets to your Google homepage, these can include clocks, weather or even games. But sadly due to the rise of the application we now have apps that can tell us all of this even easier as such iGoogle has felt a little left behind and is why Google will be killing of the page on November 1st 2013, which is surprising a long while away.
“On November 1, 2013, iGoogle will be retired. We originally launched iGoogle in 2005 before anyone could fully imagine the ways that today’s web and mobile apps would put personalized, real-time information at your fingertips. With modern apps that run on platforms like Chrome and Android, the need for iGoogle has eroded over time, so we’ll be winding it down. Users will have 16 months to adjust or export their data.”
Alongside iGoogle they will also be shutting down Google Mini, the Google Talk Chatback widget, Google Video and the Symbian search application (which proves the ‘dead OS’ theories, sorry 808 Pureview.)
