Personalize Google and Get a Gmail Invitation

Posted by geeknews at 9:46 PM on May 20, 2005

Today, in direct competition with MSN and Yahoo!, Google, Inc. announced that users may create a personalized Google homepage for news, weather, cultural tidbits, and e-mail.


Access to Google News, the New York Times, British Broadcasting Service, local weather and moving listings, and Google’s Gmail service can be displayed on a single homepage, along with a dialogue to Google’s flagship search engine.

Dave’s Opinion
I think this is a convenient way to quickly glance at the news without any of the annoying ads served up by Microsoft and Yahoo! I need all that annoying eye candy like I need a hole in the head.

Have you been coveting a Gmail invitation? I found over a million of ‘em on isnoop.net. If you’ve got a few invitations to share, I’m sure isnoop.net would love to help give them away. Be generous.

    Finally. I’ve been waiting for Google to come out with personalization. I’m a loyal Yahoo! user, but its personaled My Yahoo! is horrendous. They are in the process of updating all of their features and stuff, but they are long overdue with My Yahoo! I’m anxious to see how well Google handles it.
