I found this new Google facility called Google Reader a few days ago. It looks like a good idea in principle but I can't for the life of me get the bloody thing to work!

Have a look and and see if you can do any better (if you can let me know), I know that it is still in beta but, the basics should work.

Just thought that I should give you a heads up in case it ever becomes useful.

I have to say, I had no problems logging in and using the Reader tool. It was straight forward to search for and add the RSS feeds from 'the register' and 'slashdot' to it, but this is basically all it is useful for at the moment. It would appear to be an RSS reader that allows you to collate multiple feeds into one ajax heavy web page. The clever bit should be in the suggestion of other sites & sources you may be interested in, however it has yet to suggest (or show me where it is suggesting) any other sources based on articles I have read and starred via Reader. I'll pop back from time to time to have a look but I'm just as happy with a desktop RSS reader for now with the sources that I know and trust...

In fact, a quick search within Reader for 'digitalirony' brings me straight to your atom feed at: feed: feed:

I had no problems adding feeds, but it they never seem to be up to date! I'll keep using it for a while and see what happens.

The main benefit over a desktop RSS feed for me would be that I can use it wherever I happen to have internet access.
