Feed reader for my phone

I have been looking for a feed reader for my phone for a long time. I have tried several and none of them quite cut it. I have been a happy user of NetNewsReader for some time now. So, when I saw that they had released a version for Windows-based phones I was pumped. I've now installed NewsGator GO! and can‘t wait to get it completey configured. I will keep you posted.

I‘m hoping this means that I will never have to use the browser on my phone ever again. I‘ve always felt like I was going back in time when using my phone. Now it‘s a step closer to becoming the complete tool. (Have I mentioned how angry it makes me when my XMPP connection drops when I get a phone call?)

Finally, while I‘m discussing feed syndication, let me comment on how totally surprised I am at the slow adoption of this technology. I can‘t think of a single technology to come along since the Web that has had such a profound impact on the way I work. I am baffled that the figures I see on current adoption show only 12% of people using feeds. This is up from 4% last year. I am baffled!
