iGoogle - a new face for a google desktop

I have been using Google personal home Page for 12 months or so... building my gadgets world. Connecting my RSSs and other tools (including my Second Life friends). I could never explain this to people (OK, for people who used NetVibes I could explain). Now -- it what seems like April 1 joke -- Google has re-branded this service as iGoogle. Note that you can select the theme... all works smoothly. Could this be the first step to Google, Apple partnership merge? (JOKE) Merge this with Google apps.. and what you get is a very aggressive move -- I expect no less from Google. Go on! Just change the name "gadget" (borrowed from PlumTree) to Mini-Windows as the next step (but the name from Microsoft). You may want to check Google my Gadgets tools.
