Google Reader to make blog reading easier

Google had recently launch the Beta version of Google Reader, a service which will allow you to read the latest postings from all your favourites blogs, news (and other sites which support RSS feeds) in a single page.


What power does Google Reader bestow upon you?
  • You can find and subscribe to your favourites blogs and sites using Google Reader Search. Else, you could subscribe to the feed directly if you know the exact RSS URL.
  • Once you subscribe to your favourites, it shall show the title of all the latest postings. You could selectively read all of them within this single page (no need to remember all your favourite blogs and keep visiting one by one to check for latest posting)
  • You can group your favourites under different Labels (allow you to group/categorise them)
  • Google Reader shall remember whether a posting had been read by your or not (thus knowing which is new to you, and have a history of what you had read).
  • You can Star your favourite articles (keep as bookmark of the posting so you can revisit them whenever you like)
Learn more about Google Reader at the FAQ. This site offers a flash tutorial on how to use Google Reader.

start.com from Microsoft offered something similar which cover a wider area and functionalities, but I think it is still in experimental stage. Nevertheless, this page is pretty cool with major Web 2.0 elements.

I wonder what will be the impact on advertisement of subscribed sites, as no advertisement is shown, thus there shall be no clicks and Ka Ching.

PS: The page might seems a little buggy when used with IE at the current moment, as the result of some actions are not instantly reflected.

So far, I only have problem with xanga, as they don't seems to support RSS feed. It works fine with blogspot and WordPress.

Google is agressive, and innovative as well. The good news is, most of their offering is free. The bad news is, they are squashing a lot of small players. Let's hope they don't get too arrogant and greedy.

In the developed world, virtually every profession makes use of computers.
However, certain professional and academic disciplines have evolved that
specialize in techniques to construct, program, and use computers.
Terminology for different professional disciplines is still somewhat fluid and
new fields emerge from time to time

Exactly my sentiments. But I am so scared of the coming war with Iran that I keep reading
about, and so cynical about how this boob-tube nation (USA) works that I think it's
probably too idealistic to go for a whole platoon, and just get behind one person: Bob
Bowman.
