Airing of Grievances

with 2 comments

When I click Firefox’s RSS icon, to add the feed to Google Reader, I always get the “Add to Google” page that informs me that “Google offers two different ways to keep up-to-date with your favourite sites”, one is the iGoogle page (which I never used), and one is the GRreader. Only after clicking “Add to Google Reader” do I get subscribed. Why’o’why? beats me.

At its (currently available) best, Google reader, like other GApps is a well-organised mess. Sadly, with my Web habits spanning two computers and 2 operating systems, I have no alternative other than using it for RSS. Perhaps another look at the competition is in place.

Oh, and when did Tweeter become Bitcher? Is this the new-web-order? rational writing in blog, spur-of-the-moment bitching in Tweets?
