Thanks to a few delays today, I really came to the party late. I was looking forward to seeing Google’s I/O presentations live online at http://www.youtube.com/GoogleDevelopers. I sat down, and started watching about 5 minutes into the presentation.
I have come to understand some of the best ways to make use of the sometimes massive stream of data by using the keyboard only. This is great because I can see in reverse chronology what I haven’t seen before and by moving through the list with the “M” and “N” keys I can mark the articles as I go through. The trouble with this is that I always have to keep propping up the stream. Google Reader needs to offer the feature of keeping the stream centered.
Those of you that aren’t aware, the site feed is your Blogger site’s RSS feed and contains either a short snippet of each of your blog or the entire text. The Site Feed Footer can be used to add consistent text (or links) to the bottom of each feed entry – much in the same manner as you might create a document feeder.
I have long used a blackberry address (@rogers.blackberry.net) that connected to my phone directly and then forwarded email messages to the phone from the various accounts that I held. Since moving to Google Apps more than a year ago I have noticed a number of improvements to the Blackberry Internet Server(BIS) and Google Apps Servers. I have decided today I would make the switch and show you how it goes.
