I'm looking at Yahoo and there's no way Google can match that, unles they start to pay for the content. No algo will give you that integration.

I don't think their goal with this was to "match" Yahoo.

It seems a lot more likely that these are just some additional features that are available to those that have already chose Google as their home page.

There is no easy way to beat my yahoo, so why bother. Make something different for those that don't use my yahoo.

I guess if I want to use the old-style google, I'll have to go directly to a data center.

I just tried it on the new personal Google... you can delete the cookie and it will no longer know who you are.

In MS-IE:

- click Tools
- click Internet Options
- click Settings
- click View Files
- find the @google cookie and delete it
- close (all) browser(s)

Open a browser and go to Google and see if it still knows "who you are"... it shouldn't.

Thanks for the idea. I did try that originally (actually deleted all cookies and temp files), but it still knows who I am. Perhaps if you don't have a gmail account, it tracks only by cookie?

BillyS --

Without responding to the substantive issues in your response to me, here is what you asked for in a service to deliver personalized news:

[google.com...]

It would be great if they tied that in to their portal -- and they can, now that they have a portal. The portal is just an easier way for us to access all the services they can provide based on their core competency: massive, cheap computing power and terrabytes of information to process with it.
