I used to aske people I met did they have a blog. Now, without google reader, I am not sure how to follow them…
Google Reader is optimized to help you sift through many news items quickly. … and that’s something these newspaper-like apps cannot accomplish.
I feel there is a need for a new service. A personal internet service. A service which will keep tabs on all the content for you. Works on your devices. Can not be discontinued. And keeps a copy of everything. Like a personal internet archive. And integrates with Google Glass, of course.
By phone I meant it will serve as a personal internet cache, your agent, always with you wherever you travel. You can connect to it from any laptop and it will synchronize feeds for you.
