I'm not worried about the datastream my Google gadgets once served up to my war-torn laptop. Those gadgets kept working, but in terms of dedicated icons such as Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Drive and Google Bookmarks. And instead of the data percolating through iGoogle, the datastream runs faster through dedicated icons.
In my daily usage, I've kept using bookmarks on mobile browsers and increased my flow of information through the power of some very clever news readers. I still don't know what will become my new default home screen. What would you suggest?
