Playing with the web
Google Reader Play is a new way to find interesting material on the web. Google selects “the best of the best” and brings it to you visually. The program keeps track of items you like and finds similar items next time you visit.
Launched last month, Reader Play opens up with a black screen that includes a filmstrip of thumbnails on the bottom, like a Flickr slide show. Items are presented full-screen, one at a time. Read an item and then move on by clicking an arrow or an item in the filmstrip.
Reader Play is a fun way to browse through news, stories and images. The more you tell it what you like, the better it should get at showing you things you’ll be interested in seeing. If you are easily distracted, beware!
