Personalized Google

Google now allows you to combine various personalized information into a single page, a la My Yahoo!. Using this new service, you could, for example, create a personalized Google page that shows your recent email messages (currently for Gmail users only), news, quote of the day, etc.

For those who, like me, abhor portal-style sites, you need not worry that this will replace the clean Google interface we love so much. Personalized Google is only for those who want Google to look like a portal; the rest of us could go to and enjoy Google in all its minimalist glory.
