I’m becoming more comfortable to the fact that if I want a reliable RSS service I am going to have to pay for it. But I don’t know if NewsBlur is the service for me.

I have no idea what direction Yahoo! is going in, but they are giving everyone a lot of confidence that where ever they end up will be cool.
