Google Reader saved my life!

Well, that might be exaggerating it slightly πŸ˜‰

Still, I was away recently on holidays for three weeks and I didn’t bring my laptop with me. I was offline. Cut off from the infostream for the first time in months.

Then one evening, while walking my son Enrique around the local plaza, I noticed there was wifi available on my phone (Nokia E65).

I fired up the browser on the phone, navigated to Google Reader and I nearly cried when I saw all my subscriptions load on my phone (sad aren’t I?)!

I was able to read my feeds, share interesting stories, and star ones I wanted to come back to – wohoo! I was able to get my info fix once more.

Enrique got taken for a lot of walks in that plaza for the rest of the holiday!!!

  1. I just spent a week up at the cottage and kept “in touch” the very same way.

    I love Google Reader because I can be reading something on my laptop on the office, open up my phone on the train and read some more and later in the evening look on via laptop or my desktop and it’s all still in sync. It’s really the only way to go.

  2. I [happened to] notice there was wifi available on my phone

    Tom, anybody that knows you would find the idea of you just ‘casually’ noticing that there was wifi available anywhere hard to believe πŸ™‚

  3. @Ryan – not to mention the ability to Share and Star posts – more and more I’m coming to the opinion that Google Reader will be my primary RSS reader.

    @Paul – oops, busted!

  4. I know exactly what you mean – I’m on holiday now in the Canaries for 2 weeks and am supposed to be getting away from it all but cant resist going online at least once a day!!!!
