I’ve had some technology challenges ever since my home PC died last year and I went 100% Mac. The changeover, and resulting delay in getting my act together on the home tech front, resulted in two important changes:
- First, because I didn’t have access to my iTunes music library (I’ll put a separate post up on that), I stopped listening to all my marketing, tech, science, political and humor podcasts. If it wasn’t already on my iPod or listenable through Pandora, I wasn’t consuming it.
- Second, just because my work habits were interrupted, I stopped reading my RSS feeds. All those good blog posts from friends, news sources, pundits and otherwise smart people were being ignored.
Well, now I’ve fixed both of these, and I’m back and better than ever! What got me to resume consuming RSS was a little Air app called Snackr, which syncs with your Google Reader account beautifully and scrolls all of your headlines. I keep it running on my second monitor (too distracting for my main screen), and it works like a charm! Hello again all my blog friends!
