Bloglines and Google Reader

I’ve been using for several years now – since Paul worked there. It’s a great product, but remains designated “Beta” despite being vastly better than their main product. Why? I can’t imagine.

But lately, I’ve been seeing 500 Internal Server Errors more often than I’ve seen the actual UI. And they’re still running Apache 2.2.9, which seems to indicate to me that they haven’t touched those servers since Paul left.

So I’ve finally moved over to Google Reader, which is vastly improved over the last time I looked at it, apparently borrowing ideas from beta.bloglines. And there’s a wide variety of iPhone apps for it, so that I don’t have to mark things read two different places. That’s pretty sweet.
