My AOL launch disappoints - where is the innovation?

Lately there has been a lot of noise regarding:
- MyYahoo
- MyGoogle
- Start.com (Microsoft's start page)
- MyAOL

It looks like the launch / latest release of all these sites has been celebrated and every blogger and paper is writing about them. They are obviously going after RSS and news aggregators in a major way so that part is newsworthy. However, what I see is actually a lack of originality. While all of these sites are now offering RSS and give users the ability to customize their feeds and even move boxes around with some fancy click and drag javascript, I don't think this is all that exciting.

Ok, they are big improvements from the way things have been in the past. However, it begs two questions. First, why did it take so long to get here and second, why are all of these players just copying each other and not innovating further? I see little that is new, fun, and exciting.

Well, in any case, I think that is great news, because will just have to see if we can spice things up a little! Are we crazy enough to try to innovate in this space that is dominated and controlled by the titants! You better believe it. Will it go anywhere? We have no idea but passion goes a long way and why not have a little fun. :-) We have some ideas that we are working on so stay tuned. Will be sharing that with you shortly!

The game, as the Tiger Onitsuka defending champion teenager Hu Dan changed previously Onitsuka Tigers preliminaries slow the first three rounds of play to be Tiger Asics called brave, was ranked first.If what James neglected, turned out can be counted Asics Tigers as one of the reasons that Lin Hao, and his presence let us forget the James stable and strong performance and data. Statistics after the game, Chelsea Asics Online shots at the goal only less than the Naples once the ball Onitsuka Tiger Asics higher than rivals, but the obvious opportunity to score in Naples, far more Asics Australia than Chelsea. Due to the absence Tiger Shoes of Mexicos Espinosa finals early speculation that a Chinese civil war. Therefore, when the Knicks on Asics Kinsei 2 the Heat, Lin Asics Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66 Hao, even if no can team win, and still will Asics Gel Kayano be an affirmation of public opinion; but if James play a Buy Onitsuka Tiger Online disorder, that the emperor is likely to be on the cusp of public opinion.Another cause for a matter of concern is the number one New Asics Shoes York Asics Tiger Knicks Onitsuka Tiger star Anthony comeback. Anthony sidelined, Lin Hao, the Asics Tiger Online outbreak, and now he came back, the ability to integrate into Jeremy Lin to create Asics Onitsuka Tiger atmosphere?
