GoogleReader Shrinkage

GoogleReaderShrink

I use Google Reader to read most of the articles on websites and only comment if I want to, but most of the time I don’t even go to the website. That made things a lot easier and I was able to read a lot more with Google Reader but as of the last few months a few main websites have really changed the way they are presented on Google Reader:

Some of the Bigger Ones:

  • Gizmodo
  • io9
  • Kotaku
  • Valleywag

Now these websites only show picture and some information about the post, a small clip of the full post, but not the whole thing. This has become really annoying and a loss for them because I don’t get to read a lot of the posts as I used to, sometimes something interests me from all the pictures and information but I don’t even see that anymore. If I find something really interesting about the title then I open the post, but sometimes products, reviews, or news might be missed because you never know what else might be there. I don’t even know how to control your content on RSS feeds, if pictures show or not or the whole post or small clip, but this is annoying. You could change your view in GoogleReader from Expanded to List view, but even in Expanded view you only see a small clip.

NegativEffect – A New Photoblog

I do love when talented Kuwaiti Photographers post up their pictures online, and one of those is NegativEffects. He has honed his skills and still developing it, turning to Apple as his preferred machine of editing and tweaking. So many unique shots and ideas when putting pictures together. I love his talented work because I see the same objects in front of me but I don’t see how he comes up with the ideas for pictures, I will take what tips I can from his pictures but fantastic shots, and recently added to my Google Reader.

He is also the talent behind the Desert Kings 2 Jokers Kuwait that I posted a while ago about, and he is the talent who has helped put together the latest GulfRun 5 videos. A great combiantion of photo and video talent, I’m looking forward to more from NegativEffects, check out his Photo-blog and enjoy.
