iGoogle Replacements – FreeFile Review

FFR-WP-logoig-replacementIf you use iGoogle, as I do, you are aware that it is being shut down on November 1, 2013. iGoogle was a very useful page to aggregate many news feeds on one page. After investigating many alternatives, I tried to live with two of the most popular solutions. I found one so-so and one excellent.

My Yahoo has been around for years and it requires a Yahoo account to use. It has been updated recently and is pleasant looking, but customizations are limited to background images and number of columns to display. The quantity of RSS feeds available is very limited, however I was able find enough to make a decent page. People who live in Yahoo’s universe will find the prominent links to other Yahoo properties useful. The deal breaker for me was two widgets that require location information (Weather and Local News) refused to remember my location. I had to re-enter my location every time the page was opened or else enjoy weather from 100 miles away. Many other users report this issue in MyYahoo’s forum.

igHome was designed as a replacement for iGoogle and I think it is by far the better solution. Registration at igHome requires only an email address. The number and quality of widgets (igHome calls them Gadgets) offered is fantastic. I found nearly all of the widgets that I had on iGoogle, and several new, interesting newsfeeds. Customization includes background image (only a few) and number of columns. Each widget can also be customized in several ways – title, height, font size, number of stories, and more. Also, you can create a widget with any valid RSS feed. After a few days of regular use, I find igHome to be not just a good replacement for iGoogle, I find it to be an upgrade.

– – – – The Bottom Line – – – –

Unless you live in Yahoo’s world, igHome is the best solution as an iGoogle replacement.

Glow-In-The-Dark Paths Could Be The Future Of Street Lighting

starpathThe Telegraph reported –

Cambridge City Council has covered an historic city pathway with ultraviolet particles which turn blue when the sun sets, in what could be the future of street lighting. The technology, called ‘Starpath’, absorbs light during the day before emitting the artificial glow in the evening. It is thought technology could one day replace streetlamps as a cheaper and more energy efficient form of lighting.
