    My computer surprise of the week was Hotmail changing to Outlook. Thanks for the upgrade, Microsoft.

  2. ND Martin says:

    Opera has an RSS feed reader built right in to the excellent browser. Google tracks everything you do anyway, so good riddance.

  3. Feedly is a good RSS reader – has a different format in reading articles, but I like it.

  4. The ultimate Google Reader alternatives list

    Ultimate is their word not mine but it’s a decent list of alternatives.

    How do I know?

  6. I only do you via email, M.D. I don’t trust Google or any of those other “keep in touch” options.

    A great RSS reader I use for Android is RSSDemon. It’s very flexible. The search feature is great. The free version & the paid version are virtually identical and the free version has no limitations or nags to purchase.

    I know lots of people like Pulse and similar, but I can’t get used to the interface – it’s just too busy. RSSDemon has a simple, no fuss text interface.

  8. Uncle Charlie says:

    Ha! I don’t even know what an RSS reader is. What I know about computers etc is slim and none.

    On top of that Google is removing the iGoogle customizable home page in November.

    I’m trying out Feedly, too, as I use Firefox. So far it seems to have integrated well. But I think I’m going to try out some other RSS feeds as well, so I appreciate input from others what they’ve found and like.

    But I’m also looking into another homepage option, maybe something like NetVibes. Has anyone tried that, and what do you think of it?

  10. I use my Mozilla Thunderbird email program to pull in all the RSS feeds I keep track of. Works great.

  11. No clue what this means but at least I’m subscribed to the emails

  12. Switched just now over to FeedDemon. Very easy transition…it has a sync up with Google Reader.
