I like Google Reader

Normally, I use Sage to read all my favorite web pages but this week I have to use slow internet connection via cellular phone (it does not give more then 460Kbps). It gets way too long for every page to load. I found that in this situation it is very practical to use Google Reader instead of Sage because you don't have to wait for all the feeds to get loaded and it is very easy to export them from Sage to Google Reader. The only problem is that Sage use folders to organize feeds (and I use also subfolders) but Google Reader does not so the result is that after the import into Reader the structure of feeds can be changed.

Fools Day

It is April the 1st today. You know what that means, right? Sure ... Google is releasing a new service called Gmail Paper. It is the simplest way how you can have all your emails printed and shipped to your address (free of fees). And there are pleanty of happy users of this cool new service...
One happy customer asks himself: "It's paper, plain and easy. I sometimes find myself wondering: what will Google think of next? Cardboard?"
I have once secret tip for the next hot Google style service. Web Paper - you can have printed all the pages from the global web which were visited more then specific number of times during the April the 1ts (and of course the threshold could be fully customized).
