Google to get personal
Google is expected to introduce a new feature on Thursday that allows people with Google accounts to set up a personalized homepage a la My Yahoo and My MSN, according to numerous Web reports.
Google representatives did not immediately return calls for comment.
The new service will let people create a homepage, giving them one place to go for e-mail, headlines, weather reports, maps, movie schedules and, of course, Web search, Search Engine watch says.
The portal will be in keeping with Google's trademark uncluttered design, however. The portal will look just like Google's homepage, but just below the search box will be links to news, Gmail, and other services.
The new feature will be available to people with Google accounts for e-mail, mailing lists, news alerts and other services through Google Labs.
