Google now allows you to personalize their home page. You can now add news feeds from several different services (such as BBC News, SlashDot, etc.), you can also add other information like weather, stock quotes and more. It is not as comprehensive as my.yahoo.com, but its Google so it has to be cool (I say this jokingly).
I hope Google will expand its content; if it is going to compete with Yahoo it will have to. The personalization feature will also be important for Google to begin to tying all of its services together more cohesively.
