You can see it's v2, the "2" at the end of the url

And finally for me too. I've got:

AdSense, AdWords, Alerts, Analytics, Base, Browser Sync, Calendar, Co-op, Finance, Froogle, Froogle Shopping List, Google Answers, Google Bookmarks, Google in Your Language, Google Mail, Google Print Publisher Program, Google Reader, Groups, Mobile Download Console, News, Notebook, Page Creator, Personalized Homepage, Personalized Search, Picasa, Sitemaps, SketchUp, Spreadsheets, SSD, Video

Any more?

FInally here too. I have everything on my list except AdWords.

I am not too impressed by the change. The length of the list is overwhelming.

Found one that's not on my list (but is on Haochi's) – orkut!

Agreed. I guess Google even forgot how many services they had! Even a layout like this would be too much for an account management page IMHO:

google.com/options/

at least it's an improvement. I just got mine sometime in the last 15 minutes, so for those of you who don't have it yet, be patient ;)

It's new here too! It doesn't fully work yet – "try something new" lists stuff that ought to be under "my services", as I'm using it already – but it looks much better than the old account page.

I've got it finally too...

Not all my services are listed though and e.g. groups is also listed beneath 'try something new' but as I use groups a very long time it isn't that new for me...

The new layout is probably in function of the checkout thing. But i do not see the link right away, anybody does?

/pd [PersonRank 10]

you will see that your checkout page data is now displayed under the left hnad side too!!

Aaron Myers [PersonRank 2]

Yes, I saw that – I like the new design!

I think all it means is that Google Groups is not linked yet to your Google account! Are you using the same password for both ?

Try loging to Groups this way and check back your accounts page:

www.google.com/accounts/Servic ...

BTW, the old link for "Mobile Download Console" – mobile.google.com/mmconsole/ba ... – now redirects to google.com instead of producing this error page:


ruscoe.net/blog/uploads/google ...

No, I get a weird 404 error because I'm redirected to :
google.com/?gsessionid=hl5rigE ...

iZeit: This worked for me fine. Any tips to have my adwords & my alerts linked?

& Writely perhaps?

Sorry – yes, I should've said that you get redirected to www.google.com with a gsessionid querystring parameter appended to the URL, which errors on the first visit but then redirects to www.google.com after the gsessionid has been allocated on the first visit...

Art-One,

Adwords: www.google.com/accounts/Servic ...
Alerts: www.google.com/accounts/Servic ...

I just have seen that the new version works in French too, from now on. And the "Mobile Download Console" link is also translated in French, so the launch is soon ;)

PS : unfortunately, in French, SSD is translated by "SSD" : no clue on what it could be...

What about the M Scrapbook, any guesses?

I guess its Mobile Notebook?

The Mobile Download Centre link has changed again – now it redirects to Google homepage without gsessionid.

I hope launch is imminent.

Ionut predicted that Mobile Download Centre "is a trimmed-down version of Google Base accessible from mobile phones that lets you manage your products."

Bob Jones [PersonRank 2]

Possibly, it does have base in the URL.

iZeitgeist: thx, this works now. What is special about those links? I did sign off via the sign off button and logged in again before, but than it did not work...

Jake's View [PersonRank 10]

I've got the new version too!

NateDawg [PersonRank 10]

Ionut is correct in his thinking. If you go to mobile.google.com/mmconsole/robots.txt you find this

# allow-all
#
# Google Base pages may be crawled by robots for the limited purpose of
# including content from Google Base in publicly available search engines.
# In order to automatically access data for any other purpose please contact
# Google at gb-feedback[put at-character here]google.com

User-agent: *

### END FILE ###

Granted, what the heck is a robots.txt file doing in a subdirectory? (don't ask why I tried this, lets just say weird obsession) But the text file comments clearly indicate that this is some sort of base extension.

One other thing, this is definitely for the mobile domain and not just a redirect trick (ie base.google.com/mobile or mobile.google.com/base). Changing the subdomain to "base" will give you a 404

[Moved from "New Google Accounts"]

hey, it looks like the new google accounts is out. With a two column layout. Personal info on the left and "My Services" on the right. Very reminiscent of the More Google Products page but my list on the left goes on forever.. hehe. Hopefully they fix that soon and use the space more efficeintly.

Do you know what's missing on that page? The "Gmail for your domain".
