iGoogle and RSS Feeds

In case you haven't discovered this, I find that iGoogle can be a great way to place all your most-viewed Internet info on a single page.

For example, you can see your email, updates to any searches on Craigslist, comics, news headlines, stock market, calendar items, new free Kindle books, etc. For example, if someone posts an ad for free firewood on Craigslist, I'll see it. If DD posts on twitter or facebook, it will be on that page.

You can also access the page on your iPod touch or other mobile device.

Here's my page (with personal info blocked).

Too funny - Just before this, I was reading a blog post about tools to keep you from being sidetracked while on the computer. This is the exact opposite of that!

Google announced (this morning?) that they have added a "Dashboard" function to the "My Account" screen.

There you can find all of your past Internet activity -- searches, purchases, credit card data, etc.

I am sure it is Secure. <chuckle>

Very handy. Thanks.
And if I claim to be a wise man, it surely means that I don't know.
