    Sometimes I don't understand the lack of love for RSS
    feeds and the fact that Google recently shut down their
    service.

    I consider myself to be an RSS feed junkie. You can see
    in the above photo, a partial screenshot of my desktop.
    On the left side of the screen resides an app called
    NEWSBAR. It's a transparent scrollable feed of the latest
    RSS news items that I am subscribed to. This is probably
    my single most favorite piece of software I have purchased.

    I am always looking for new RSS feeds to add to it. The
    more news I receive, the better. I even have RSS feeds
    coming from this very forum to keep on top of the latest posts
    moments after they are published.

    So, for you fellow RSS junkies out there, what do you consider
    to be your favorite feeds?I am going to list mine below. If you click on the links and have
    an RSS reader installed on your desktop, it should automatically
    add that feed to your software.

    It's how I browse the web and relax in the evening :)With Google Reader shutdown, I'm using Feedly on my iPhone and iPad. Really like it. But I don't have a desktop app; though I almost never read RSS feeds on my computer before Google quit RSS.

    kottke.org is one of my favorites. Always something interesting showing up there.

    Most of my feeds are of personal interests, but I would toss out Warming Glow (pop culture snark), Badass Digest (movies), and I Watch Stuff (movies)

    No links, but I only used RSS for some (fantasy) baseball stuff (like Rotoworld, Hardball Times, Baseball Prospectus) and a little bit of Android stuff (from Android Central and maybe one other place I don't recall now).

    For the baseball fans amongst you, came across this via the Hardball Times feed at the start of the current baseball season -- actually made use of the comic strip for my FB cover pic: :D

    http://www.hardballtimes.com/main/blog_article/20th-anniversary-charlie-browns-moment-in-the-sun/

    [​IMG]

    FYI, the Hardball Times article got her name wrong -- should actually be Royanne Hobbs. :D

    Went cold turkey w/out RSS for the last few weeks, but probably should get back to it maybe w/ Feedly...
