iGoogle's demise is 11/1/13... igHome: a good replacement

iGoogle's 'end of life' is coming up on 11/1/13. Been getting some good responses to this little YouTube video tutorial I created a while back, and thought it was worth re-posting here.

igHome seems to be a fitting replacement for iGoogle, with similar functions and look and feel. The transition, explained in the 4 minute video below, is fairly easy.

One question that comes up is "Who are these guys?" While the site does not directly answer that (unfortunately) with an About page (more than a few people have requested that get added, via igHome's support page), here is a link to their privacy policy, which, in my opinion, looks ok. On that page is also a link to send email if you want to pursue who they are in more depth...

If you use iGoogle as your start page, or as an RSS feed reader, igHome is a good replacement to consider. Don't wait - iGoogle's demise is planned 11/1/13!

Great! Was disappointed to lose iGoogle, but this looks to be a great replacement. Easy to set up and use.

There are many good options out there for start pages, but I have decided for http://startme.com because it is easy to use, has a nice design and allows to set it up in different languages, what has come in handy for friends and family abroad.
