Get your Google personalized
It took them long enough. You can now personalize the appearance of your Google homepage. For instance, while you are googling, you can have a small box showing the latest incomings of your Gmail account. Nice stuff! (and one more way how Google can keep track of its visitors browsing behavior).

Yea, Google is going portal. Whoopie.
They're also trying to beef up their video service, which I've been very interested in. Basically they will host your streaming bandwidth for free if you are a small-time content producer, which is very cool. I think part of it is they are going to try to be the eBay/micropayment gateway of online video ... you set up an account with Google, you pay $3 to watch Joe Schmoe's home movie (or whatever Joe wants to charge you), Google gets 50 cents and Joe pockets the rest.
Here is a link to the Slashdot story, which I wasn't able to find via Slashdot since their search engine suck so bad... had to use Google.
