Its amazing what you can do...

... with Google Reader.
That's right, minions, I'm a Google fanboy, and I'm damn proud of it. Google Reader is the company's in-beta RSS (Really Simple Syndication) aggregator, that's chock-full of features and very easy to use. And it's addictive as hell.
For those who came in late, RSS is a way of staying in the loop with your favourite websites and blogs. Most pages have an RSS feed symbol with a link. Once you've logged in, you'll be greeted by the home page, which has a summary of all your RSS feeds. To add a new feed, simply click 'Add a subscription' on the left and enter the feed link. If you've got the Google Toolbar installed on your browser you can simply click 'Subscribe' and it'll be added to Reader.
Reader also has a list of neat feeds categorised by topics that you might enjoy. I've got several feeds on my Reader, including Neatorama, Haha.nu, several technology blogs, web comics, friends' blogs and some photography sites. Other notables include The Deviantart Skins & Themes gallery feed, which keeps me updated on the latest skins that are out, seeing as how I manage the gallery. Plus, the Giveaway of The Day feed lets me know if there's any good free software available that day.
Are you still here? Start using Reader asap. Chop chop!
