    Whatever has an RSS feed. I spend 15-20 minutes in the morning browsing through posts from about 30 feeds I watch. From the 100-200 headlines I browse, I usually choose to launch the related web page or blog for about a dozen of them.

    Then I go to work.

    Hmmm. Since I read lots, and also have to find information for Geekzone, I rely heavily on RSS feed and PR distribution sites (which by the way are not using RSS yet).

    Some companies (like Microsoft and Opera) are now offering RSS from their Press sites – nice. I currently have more than 300 feeds coming into Sharpreader (and a filtered version on my Windows Mobile Smartphone and another one on a Pocket PC Phone Edition).

    Weblogs and RSS rule! In a couple of minutes they give me the headlines and details on Microsoft and other information.

    My PDA even reads weblog to me while driving.

    I find that the combination of MS blogs, Slashdot, news.com, Google news, Wired, and Wikipedia’s home page keeps me "linked up enough" to not need RSS. Also, a few well-known big vendor sites thrown in like MS, Apple. And Cringely.

    Blogs, RSS Feeds, the only way to surf. I can hit hundreds of sites for information in seconds. And I can retain that information as well. For example one of the websites in my RSS Reader I noticed today has had feed errors for last 5 days, so I went and looked and aparently the ISP that hosts him has a big notice on the site asking the owner to contact them. Well I still have access to all the previous articles I pulled in. I can read those articles at the airport unplugged. It is like docking your PC somewhere go get the info and then come back and read later. I spend about an hour a day sorting through my feeds. But these feeds include things like msdn just published http://msdn.microsoft.com/rss.xml and http://msdn.microsoft.com/subscriptions/rss.xml MSDN Subscriber downloads. A lot of things like that. GotDotNet.com all workspaces have RSS feeds on check ins and updates there are a ton of ways to browse the web get exactly what you want wth out actually having to open a browser now.
