Google Dashboard: improved user control of hosted data
Google has launched Dashboard, giving Google Account holders more control over their Google hosted data. Dashboard provides a top-down view of the various Google services, such as YouTube, Gmail, Picasa and Google Calendar, in use by an account holder and provides access to the data, settings and history – "easily and concisely in one location".
Users, however, can't delete data directly from the Dashboard. To delete, they must first navigate to the settings for each of the individual services. Currently, data from the Android Market and the Translator Toolkit don't seem to be included. A Google Dashboard introduction video is available on YouTube.
