It really is a Google Reader clone and it's already working. I view full feeds that mark as read as I scroll. Feedly is the only service I've seen that duplicates that feature. Don't be put off by the magazine style view. You can make this thing look just like Reader in two clicks. Frankly I think it looks better than Reader. Their servers were overloaded last night but everything is working fine now.
I was thinking the same thing. Then i remembered the 2.2 billion dollar government program to give cellphones to low income people (40% of which we find actually make too much to qualify but were given one anyway). Or the obama phone at obamaphone.net ... For the homeless person on the go I guess.
