I really enjoy RSS feeds! Keeping up with news, technology, and local happenings is a passion of mind. RSS feeds make reading the news so much more efficient. I don't have to open up each individual web site and comb over other stories that I have already looked at. A feed aggregator such as Bloglines does all the work for me. The Bloglines web site was new to me, however, I had used Google's RSS service called Google Reader. Although Bloglines does a nice job of making the start-up process easy for new users, I find that Google Reader's layout is more streamlined and easy to use.
RSS aggretators are a great example of how technology can actually make us more efficient!
