World of Warcraft iGoogle theme

More and more people (myself included) are starting to use iGoogle as their homepage, because it's incredibly useful. There's all sorts of widgets you can use to customize your homepage, from useful things like the weather and a feed of the top news stories, to goofy things like games and videos. I started using it awhile ago, so I was excited to hear about the addition of World of Warcraft iGoogle theme.

The theme is pretty basic as far as its appearance goes: A little art on top, a little art on the bottom, and text colored to match. No absurd bells and whistles or major distractions. The cool thing this theme does, like a few other iGoogle themes, is it changes depending on the time of day in your region. When I first put this theme on my homepage earlier today it had a somewhat orange tinge to it all, the art being what I believe is Durotar. Orcs, all of that sort of thing. As of my writing this, it's only 2 PM Central and it's already switched over to the dark blue of the Lich King. It seems a bit early to be swapping to what appears to be the nighttime version of the theme, and it's somewhat depressing in an odd sort of way.

Blizzard ices up the WoW homepage logo

It's begun. The cold is coming. Be warned. The land itself will rise up against you. Long-forgotten terrors will smother your courage. In the end, all that awaits you... is death.

So come then, you heroes! Come in all your power and glory! For in the final hour, all must serve... the one, true king.

[ Thanks, Lenny! ]

Blizzard offers Burning Crusade free trial-- to whom?

Ok, I'll admit there probably isn't much of a point to telling you about this, but I'll do it anyway. Just in case you haven't been by Blizzard's WoW homepage in a while (and why would you, with such an informative site here, right?), it appears that they have announced a free trial for the Burning Crusade expansion. That's right, if you really weren't prepared and haven't purchased the expansion yet, you can now download and try it for free for 10 days.

That said, who among you out there really hasn't purchased the Burning Crusade yet? I don't mean to make a hard sell (personally, I don't care if you buy it or not), but you have an inhuman amount of willpower if you've been reading this site, checking out all this amazing stuff, and have been able to somehow avoid the temptation to go out, to plunk down the cash and head into Outland.

I guess if you're not yet 60, there's not a lot of call for it, but even if you're a lowbie, you'll like the new Draenei and Blood Elf lands. Has anyone out there not taken the plunge yet? And what on Azeroth has kept you from buying it? At any rate, if you want a free trial of what you're missing, Blizzard is ready to offer it to you.
