here’s a few ways to use feeds:
- [update] google reader is now my feed reader of choice
- Opera – tutorial on opera and feeds
- Gmail (settings, web clips) – random viewing of a story/ feed item above the message list
- FeedReader – becomes an icon in the system tray, and starts spinning when new stuff comes in
how I use it: opera for (a lot of) news, gmail for fun stuff, feedreader for stuff I want to follow closely.
