The Sunday Share – 10 Google Reader Alternatives

The Sunday Share – 10 Google Reader Alternatives. There has been much hand wringing and weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth over the announcement by Google this past week over the death of Google Reader.

While I can’t vouch for any of the 10 Google Reader Alternatives, mentioned below, I can recommend NetNewsWireone RSS News reader that I’ve been using since shortly after it began. NetNewsWire was introduced in July of 2002, and I’ve been using it ever since. The best thing I like about the application is it’s interface with another of the company products MarsEdit. In fact I’m using both application is the creation of this blog post. Being a longtime user I can highly recommend the application should you be seeking an alternative to Google Reader.

As a business resource, Slideshare stands pretty much head and shoulders above most other content platforms.

From presentations to educational content and more, you can find information and curated media on pretty much any topic you have an interest in.

As a research solution, Slideshare offers analysis from some of the smartest minds on the web across all verticals. These include standard presentations, videos, multimedia and more.

Which brings us to this week’s Sunday Share.


Every week, I’ll be sharing a presentation that catches my eye and where I feel you might be interested in the information inside. These will range from business to content to social media to marketing and more.

This week, a particularly useful Slideshare from professional blogger Ana Hoffman of Traffic Generation Cafe.

With the big news this week that Google is closing down its popular Reader service in July, Ana shares 10 great alternatives to Google’s service, including a surprising addition to the mix.

It’s short but offers some great options for bloggers and blog readers.

Website #FAIL #FAIL

I’ve noted this previously and then ran across the web site this morning. It occurs to me that has no interest in my business whatsoever.

In order to access their site I need to fill out the pop up just to look and see what they might have to purchase that I would find useful or that I might be currently looking for to purchase.

No thanks, I’ll be looking elsewhere.

iPad Thoughts.


Yes I’ve got mixed thoughts about the iPad.

Bad name. But it falls into the rest of the 3-4 letter names of much of the other Apple devices.

Recharging is an issue as you only have the current flat pin to USB connection. This means you’ll need to buy an additional adapter for plugging it into the wall to charge. This is fine for use here in the states but what about traveling worldwide? Will you be able to charge it in Mumbai, or Singapore, London or Barcelona?

I also see the possibilities of this device getting dropped at the most inopportune moments. I’m sure there is a growing market suddenly for iPad insurance.

Half inch thin, slimmest Tablet – A Great Design, and just what we’d expect from the Apple Design experts.

1.5 pound in weight (approx 600 gm) – Ok, so I won’t get a hernia hauling it around.

9.7 inch diagonal screen IPS type – Much better for our eyes. ( of course the reading glasses industry will take a hit.)

Capacitive multi-touch – It’s the size and encourages interaction which is good.

1024×768 display resolution – I’d like to see one live to see how good this is.

16 to 64 GB Flash storage – A good start and with memory being so inexpensive currently, I’d bet we’ll see this grow.

1 Ghz A4 Processor – I also this this will get faster as the technology progresses

WiFi 802.11n Wifi – This had to be a part of it. I’d look for SIM card or an alternative connectivity solution to be fully usable.

Built-in Speaker – I’d like to hear it.

Built-in Microphone – I’d like to hear what something recorded on it. I’m not sure I’d want to do a full blown interview. Maybe a impromptu interview.

Accelerometer – Gaming. I don’t see people using the “Bump” app with their iPads.

Compass – For those who are truly lost? WTF?

10 Hours Battery with One Month Standby – I want to see real world users experience with battery life.

iPad 3G models are unlocked – Very good.

WiFi models shall be available in 60 days worldwide – Any bets on this getting pushed back?

Comes with Wifi and / or?3G – Are they testing the current or soon to be available 4G networks?

Sync with iTunes – So? Don’t all the most recent Apple Products?

New GSM micro SIM for 3G data transmission – Will this be a carrier specific GSM card or an unlocked one. Also will it be accessible to the purchaser?

Just how bad is the Real Estate Market?

This is from the Summit Daily, the local paper of Summit County, Colorado.


Now this is also something for webmasters and those of us who blog and post things to blogs. It would be in the best interest of everyone to take another look at the partial or citation type of posts to RSS readers so as to avoid such confusion.

While going through my RSS feeds I did fine this wonderful place to start building my Twitter Lists.
