How cool is i google?

OK - I realise that I'm probably a bit slow off the blocks here but I've just discovered igoogle and have created my own personal home page.

As well as the usual search facility my default page now also has:

  • the 5 day weather forecast for the charente valley

  • real time (almost) changes to my stock portfolio

  • the 10 newest messages I've received on gmail

  • a french/english translation tool for when I come across a word I don't know

  • google map, centred on my house, so I can plan route times when visiting houses

It's absolutely brilliant and I'm sure I could discover a zillion other add-ons if I didn't have to actually get on and do some work!
