It seems that the Buzz social network is being axed, and at the same time the Gmail interface has been "improved".

I'm not fussed about Buzz, but I really liked my wood theme Gmail page, not so sure about the improved version with the off-white content area and cut and pasted themes from the web.

Anyway, if you are a Gmail user "You will automatically get upgraded to the new look soon."

I guess they know what is best for us?
