Google adds RSS reader to google.com/ig

    Newer Older

    Google's custom homepage just got a ton of new ajaxy features. I noticed in the "Create a Section" feature, you can put a RSS URL to add it to your homepage (I typed "URL to RSS feed" for demo purposes). You can see MetaFilter and A Whole Lotta Nothing in my new custom Google homepage

      Is it okay to take screen shots of web sites and then distribute it under a CC license (with yourself as the copyright holder)? I think Google still owns the copyright, and the CC license is null.

      yeah, you're right ktheory. Usually I turn off CC for these screencaps.

      I like FeedFeeds which allows me to categorize my subscribed feeds.
