Printed newspaper are crap. The news in them is old, you still get entire multipage sections that you don’t want, they use up trees and gasoline, they crowd your mailbox and you have to dispose of them after reading them. And they cost money! News should be read on-line, preferably with an RSS reader. (I use Google’s).
Now, here’s something for my Swedish readers. The country’s main newspapers, Dagens Nyheter and Svenska Dagbladet, currently don’t offer a finely sorted selection of thematic RSS feeds. If I want the main international news headings from them, then I have to put up with a load of pointless sports stories and local murder cases as well.
However, our friends on the front side of the country, GÃ¶teborgs-Posten, have a set of sorted feeds. And that’s where my ad hits go these days.
