I have been addicted to read news using Google Reader ever since I started using it. Its one of the best Applications ever by Google and greatly helps me in staying updated with the news from Silicon Valley, Mobile Technologies, Internet, Android etc.
The video below will explain you in plain English what is and how to use, Google Reader.
I can suggest you sites worth subscribing on Google Reader.
The list goes on as per your interest and needs. Above are the sites I frequently used to go and visit, but Google Reader came to rescue.
And Google Reader is not limited to only this. I am a software developer and I have made the suggestions accordingly. Besides technical sites, you are free to subscribe the RSS feeds of sites that relate to ,say, Cooking, Sports, Automobiles, Economy, Politics and possibly everything.
Just login into your Google Reader and start scrolling the articles. Thats it. Ain't that easy.!!!
