iGoogle Web Portal is Closed Now

Google has made an official announcement on Friday. Its iGoogle service is closed for good. Google officially announces that "iGoogle was retired on November 1, 2013. The mobile version was retired on July 31, 2012." The reasons behind this retirement of a facility are many. Efforts towards this end were already begun in July of this year. The action almost reminds one of killing an animal that had contracted a deadly contagious disease. A sad but necessary act, as they say.

iGoogle began operations in 2005. It served as an individualized web platform where all sorts of brain detritus got dumped by users. Random stuff was fed into this cyberspace window of opportunity. From quotable quotes to instant messages, you could add to the slowly collecting creative chaos on this site.

The site had a few basic themes in the same manner as Chrome has today. But with the appearance of Google+, iGoogle was bound to die an unnatural death. Google had turned to other stuff and forgotten about this project. Finally, now that we have Google Now, the days of iGoogle are indeed over. The very need for the site had gone out the window and so iGoogle was put out of its misery.

From now onwards it is plain old Google that people will experience. The whole setup has gone back to reality and it may be painful but it is also healthier. Google+ has a user base of 300 million individuals and each one of them is enjoying the experience.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
