Elsewhere in my blog I noted a nice online QRCode Generator. Poking around, I realized that it was a widget built to be added to my iGoogle page. Poking around some more I was reminded that iGoogle is going over the river Styxx November 1.
Not that I used iGoogle much. Evidently it didn’t engender that much of a following. Some of us can remember when our desktop was different — before “Social Media.” As an independent contractor, I didn’t have a corporate homepage, or intranet that I lived in. So I landed myself on iGoogle for a while.
iGoogle was interesting, certainly, and a great example of what we should expect in the future — a continuing trend that involves an evolving desktop. We adapt and change regularly preferring new tools over the old. And at some point the old stuff recedes into history.
I thought iGoogle was cool — in it’s time. Kudos to Google.
