And Google has just got a lot more personal in Australia with some exciting news today.
First, we've renamed Personalised Homepage "iGoogle", reflecting your own personalisation and ownership of your homepage.
But more importantly, now Australians can further personalise iGoogle with six different themes. Go to www.google.com.au/ig to check them out. Each theme is fun and dynamic, changing to match the weather or time of day. So when it's raining outside (hopefully over the Murray-Darling and our dams), you might see characters don their wet weather gear (or just stand there getting wet). When the sun is setting outside your office window, you might notice a sunset over the beach to make that Whitsundays holiday seem just a bit closer.
But we're not content to rest on our laurels. We want to make an Aussie-specific theme available to iGoogle users here and everywhere. So we want your suggestions. A game of beach cricket? A famous Aussie painting? An outback scene? If you have a unique idea for an Aussie iGoogle theme, email us. (Brief thoughts are ideal; no artwork necessary!). We'll post the best ideas here and work to make an Aussie theme available.
