It's like a CNN crawl, only a little less intrusive and a bit more customiseable. Paul Stamatiou: "Essentially, you subscribe to a bunch of feeds and everytime you log into Gmail it loads the lastest title from each feed which you can scroll through with left/right arrows. This isn’t too helpful as you have to click the title of each feed to actually get any info (somewhat voiding the principle of aggregation)."
At least you can get rid of the damn silly quote of the day (Thanks, James Thurber, now take a hike!) & replace it with something you want to read.
And, in a slightly more positive tone, this is an effort at integration.
