I admit it. Ya might as well get me fitted for the damn brain chip right now cause it seems I am unable to resist any new product from the google geeks. Just plug me in to the machine and index away.
The latest technological advance coming out of the google labs, (and its about time) is google reader.

Bloglines is dead, long live google reader.

Several initial reactions seem to prefer Bloglines UI over Google Reader, ( Winer , )which I do NOT understand. C’mon, they got rid of folders, isn’t that enough?! Folders are sooo microsft, soo 1999, so sucky.

I have (had) 85 feeds in my Bloglines account, organized into about 13 folders, which basically did nothing for me except keep them in some kind “mental framework” or … prison that made sense but was more like a sorting tool than a reading tool. What I actually want to do with my feeds, is read them. And preferablly the latest ones first and in the order they were posted. Essentially what Google reader does (“out of the box”) is compile your entire feed collection into one “kludge feed”, always with the most recent postings at the top sorted chronologically. Beautiful!

Not to mention all the wonderful fun you can have w/ lables,
