The iGoogle retirement dilemma

An open letter to Google

Since its introduction in 2005 I have used iGoogle as my default browser homepage. It has become a friend, a well worn in comfortable pair of shoes. I use it every day and have grown to love its idiosyncrasy but alas Google have decided to decided to retire the service as from the 1st November next year (2013). They give reasons such as mobile platforms bla bla... Android bla bla... Google Chrome bla bla... This is little consolation to the desktop user, some of us still like to use a nice crisp hi-res screen while sitting at a desktop rather than squinting at a tiny compressed space on a smart phone. So Google please reconsider, remember your corporate philosophy "Don't be evil" thanks.
