Still Subscribed

June 29th, 2009 . by 21st Century Dad

I unsubscribed from almost all of my feeds.

I still love you guys and gals. You now show up in my Google Reader instead of my inbox.

I can now consolidate all my RSS subscriptions in one place. My entire computing life is more streamlined now. Having a Google account gives me some cool online tools. I can squeeze even more functionality out of my non-smart phone.

If you’re not cool enough to have a smartphone, the next best thing is an unlimited text messaging plan connected your social media accounts.

Now that I have a Google account and iGoogle homepage that I’m actually using, I’m looking at Google’s SMS goodies even further. A detailed post about how I make my dumb phone smarter will be coming soon.

    I love Google tools, for an RSS reader I am using my.live.com though. My.Live allows me to arrange my feeds in up to four columns per tab on multiple tabs! I haven’t found similar functionality on iGoogle.

    I love my Gmail, Blogspot, Analytics, Feedburner and Adsense though. If IGoogle gives me a more fluid way to arrange all of my feeds (100+) I would jump right on it, until then my.live is the way to go for me.

    Looking forward to the dumb phone education post. Anything I can figure out how to do on the bus is a time saver for me.

    I’m also a fan of Google’s tools. They make my life much easier. Google Talk is my current favorite.

    I’ve always used Google Reader to read blogs. I also use Google for email as as my calendar.

    Sometimes I do worry about relying so much on one company.

    @Danny – I’m all about maximizing the capabilities of a resource. A dumb phone can do a lot more than people think.

    @Vered – Yeah, I know! I used to look toward over-reliance on Microsoft as a bad thing. Here I am relying so much on Google.

    I too use Google for everything. They come out with a lot of great tools. It always seems everything states beta forever.
