iGoogle is on its way out. I need a new portal.

I am reminded of Google retiring GReader... the way that it changed my online life and the uproar that came along with it. Except this time there is no uproar or teams of companies try to market their competitive offerings to me. Where do I go now? [more inside]

How to Build GCal of New Music Releases?

Looking for a way to build a calendar of new/future album releases in GCal. Currently hand-entering release dates found on Amazon and elsewhere. There is bound to be a better way to do this with RSS, etc. Would like to be able to specify genre(s) and filter out re-issues, singles, EPs, multiple formats, etc - leaving only simple top results for full-length discs. This may be simpler than I am imagining, but should indeed be possible, even if it means using someplace besides Amazon as my source.
