Google Reader Experience Update
I have two new items to update the world on since the new Google Reader update I wrote about in a previous post. First the good news. The mobile version works great on my new Nokia E62. The interface is usable but sadly it only works in it's aggregate view. I can't view posts by blog. It only shows me the latest posts in all my subscriptions. Still it's really a great feature and it helps me pass the time after all the email has been downloaded and processed on the hand held. Now the bad news. It crashes my browser (Firefox on Mac OS X) constantly. It's to the point that the thing is unusable. I notice this when I scroll down lists of posts for a particular blog that might have 100+ entries I haven't read. I haven't done the requisite search for other folks that are having this problem but if I'm going to be forced to search for a fix I might as well be searching for a replacement. So while I would hate to give up an online, server-based, aggregator, but I need something that isn't going to crash and loose my reading history every 15 minutes, (Yes, folks it's that bad) I need something more reliable. My time is too important to me. I'll keep this space updated on my progress. Alas Google Reader, your ajaxian goodness may have done you in.
