I'm there and I'm using it but I'm not convinced yet ... maybe it's because I'm a speed-reader, maybe because I'm divergent, maybe it's because I like to choose my sources, maybe it's because I dislike relying on one thing because once that goes down or stops working (think Bloglines), maybe it's just because it just shows me what I already keep up with and have already seen by the time it appears on the page. I don't know. I just feel unimpressed (and I shouldn't because it's a free service that doesn't owe me anything ...).
Robert Scoble's been talking about this for a while (keeping the name secret at the time though) and maybe my problem with it is that I was expecting more from it, I don't know.
I do like the interface though - it's easy to use and quite intuitive (albeit a bit basic). One thing that it's really lacking is a way to customize the feeds - it's currently a take it or leave it thing.
