So you’ve got Gmail – what you need next is Google Reader. It’s simply the very best RSS reader on the market, and once again it’s free! Here are the features of Google reader, and in a moment we’ll explore how to get the best out of it:
I’m the last person who wants to tell you how to Tweet, but I would like to share my experience of multiple accounts on Twitter with you, to help you make up your own mind about whether or not it’s the way for you to go.
