iGoogle is a convenient way to oganise my desktop and access gadgets. I think I will like it more when I make time to read the blogs which I can add to my iGoogle desktop, and when I make time to experiment with it. Like anything new, it takes a while to become familiar with it and use it to best advantage. Perhaps it suits people who spend lots of time sitting in front of their monitors, whereas my day is often consumed by ineraction with students.
As for working at Google, I'd like to work somewhere as stimulating professionally with such a fantastic work environment, but I'm not sure I'd make the cut at Google! No wonder Google is the most used internet site in the world!
