Digg RSS Reader in Beta Coming Next Week

Digg has arrived with its replacement version of the Google Reader and it is on the selfsame API. It will open on June 26th for everyone and the friends and family beta will launch even earlier (on the 19th). According to the official blog, the big thing about beta is that it comes absolutely without any costs. In a survey conducted it was found out that nearly half the respondents would prefer a replacement for the Google Reader. And the amazing fact is they are willing to pay for it. There was a general feeling among the people that free services don’t last long. The fact that everybody owns it means by its very nature that nobody cares about it.

The Digg Reader is going to be a premium service. All the Google Reader migrants to the new Digg Reader page will be sufficient to make it a worthwhile experiment. The original version was formed in just a three month time span. While it looks awesome and is similar to the Google Reader in many ways it still misses a few features. The words that are appropriate and fit the new Digg Reader are: clean, simple, functional and fast.

In the beginning 17,000 exclusive customers will get access to the special service. Beyond that anyone who signs up will be free to come on board the Digg Experience. Within a week of the new startup the Google Reader will wind up operations. There will be a mass level of reaching for the new service before the old one ends. The big challenge was to make the new contraption fit the Internet environment of 2013. Some people have taken the end of Google Reader to be the final parting shot of RSS. But the fact is that it is worthy of being kept as a valuable tool.

Digg Reader was built by what consisted of a five person team of dedicated individuals. Meanwhile, on July 1st Google Reader says its bye byes. This new service that will take over from the unwieldy past one is a great blessing for the intellectual bibliophile crowd out there.  Now anyone can read anything he or she wants with freedom and pleasure.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
