When Google announced that iGoogle was going away Nov. 1, 2013, there was a substantial outcry. Like many jilted users, I signed a petition begging Google to reconsider, but it doesn't look like Google will. In particular, I urged Google to add a mandatory ad bar and base its content on the other iGoogle page content - that way it could mine a revenue stream based on the interests of millions of users. No such luck.
