This morning I got caught in an RSS tornado. I was minding my own business in gmail on my Eee PC when I must have accidentally clicked on “Google Reader”. The next thing I know, over 1,000 news articles were at my fingertips.
No, this is not an ad for Google. There are plenty of services for RSS, but I normally use Akregator to handle mine on my desktop. I never bothered to set it up on my netbook.
The funny part of it all is that I have no recollection of ever setting up Google Reader. I would have needed to import my .opml file (the file that contains the feeds) in order for my feeds to be there on demand, that is unless Google somehow scooped off of my hard drive (I’m working on a new conspiracy theory). So much for getting work done. Darn cloud computing.
