Blerts.com is on stage right now saying they have the way to read RSS feeds. Saying it solves information overload problems.
It’s the worst thing I’ve seen on the Demo stage so far.
Wrong way to overcome information overload. Seeing only headlines is FAR FAR FAR less productive than using a real RSS reader that shows full text. This thing only shows you headlines which means you have to click and wait to see each item. That is HORRIBLY inefficient compared to other approaches like NewsGator, Bloglines, NetNewsWire, or Google Reader.
Can you use keyboard commands to plow through your feeds like Google Reader does for me? No.
Does it give you a river of text like Google does? No.
I almost didn’t even bring this up. There’s so much better stuff coming out of Demo that deserves your attention more.
