Google "Google's Chrome and Android operating systems will remain separate products but could have more overlap, Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt said, a week after the two came under a single boss." That's that, then.

If you're using a desktop reader, then each client (laptop, work desktop, mobile, etc) has to track that stuff itself, so that a) if you subscribe to something new, it needs to be separately added to all clients, and b) any given client doesn't know which items you've already read on a different client.


Right, that's what I meant when I said 'feeds' ;) Why can't we standardize all that shit so any app would work with any 'feed repository'? In other words, I set up my feeds/subscriptions/whatever on a server, and then I can use whatever app(s) I want to access them.

We already do this with email (IMAP), so don't see a reason why it couldn't work with RSS. Google has already proven it can work, but the only problem is that everybody was using the same repository/API.
