Dumb Google Reader's Flurry of Features: Still Without Filtering/Recommendation Based On Current Interests
I don't understand why Google Reader can't have a filtering/recommendation feature that gives me what I want to read based on my current interests.
Stop giving me all the articles in my feeds. There are way too many(1000+). Let me tell Google Reader what my current interests are(say mobile apps, iphone, marketing). Then Google Reader should recommend the articles from my feeds that match my interests. My interests change over time. I don't want to spend my valuable time scan through feeds to find items that I am interested in. Can Google Reader be smarter? How can it be this dumb? Isn't that Google supposedly really understands content, index them and bring us relevant results?
Apple released new generation of MacBook a couple days ago. Amazon has slashed its price on "previous" generation of MacBook and offers rebates as well.
Here's a trick outlined by rabidrobin at SlickDeals to manipulate(aka influence) Amazon recommendation system to offer your desired products as your daily gold box deals:
- Create a new account
- Go to the product page for an applecare for macbook pro
- scroll down until you find the "I Own it" checkbox, and check it
- At the top of the screen, click on Recommendations
- Go through the list of 20-30 or so recommended items and click "Not Interested" for the ones that aren't macbook pros
