iGoogle alternative: Genieo - A personalized newspaper styled homepage

 On July 3rd, 2012 Google CEO Larry announced that on November 1st, 2013 Google will pull the plug on iGoogle.  However since Google has not announced any plans to offer an alternative that leaves people scanning the internet for iGoogle alternatives.


The question is where should you hang your homepage hat? What should be the first thing that appears when you open your browser and start catching up with your online life?
If you're a news junkie but you don't tend to look at RSS feeds cause you know how impossible it is to catch up with long list of sources, If you like to scan news headlines, but you don’t want to read everything out there, then you can't go wrong with Genieo, a personalized newspaper styled homepage, which brings you the latest stories based on a smart behavior analysis engine. 
I’m using it for everything from monitoring my favorite blogs and news sites to tracking hot stories and catching up with my friends on Facebook and follow great people on Twitter. You don't need to open an account with Genieo.com in order to take advantage of our great services.
