Is the Home Page dying a slow death?

Earlier today I received this message from the Home Page:

I’m sorry I never told you what was wrong with me, but I didn’t want you to worry.
We had a good run didn’t we?
And I couldn’t have done it without you – it’s true, you’ve made it a joyous journey…

The message went on and the Home Page never once said ‘why me?’.
Are you really surprised? Isn’t the digital property that causes the most conversation and/or interaction, a digital property such as (insert your preferred one here) truly the most relevant? Are we not conceptually already beyond “pages”?
