  1. I want to be able to read my rss stories in Google Reader from my iphone. Is there an app that I can trust giving my gmail password?

  2. I want to remain anonymous while I read a persons blogs. If you subscribe to a blog using Google Reader, or read a blog through Google Reader, can you or your ip address, or any other identifiable information be discovered by the blog owner/reader?

    Thanks,

  3. RSS aggregators like Google Reader are nice, but I want a service that will email me every time one of my feeds has a new post (not just a daily digest). This seems like such an obvious thing, but i can’t find one or figure out how to set it up in something like Feedburner. Does anyone know how to easily do this? Thanks!

    I like sharing a lot on google plus. Generally when I find a blog post or something I like on google reader I will share the link on fogle plus and put a small comment. If I was to post the entire post I was reading on google plus is that ok and legal as l long as I link back to the original source post?

    I have a blog and I want people to be able to subscribe by e-mail and get e-mail notifications of new blogs posts. My family does not use google reader or blog lines or any other readers. They are not very tech-savvy so I need a way for them to read my blogspot/blogger blog by getting simple e-mail notifications. How do I do this?

    Thank you for your time

    When I’m offline I love to be able to read all blog posts for a given blog. Google Reader now offers the ability to read offline. However I haven’t been able to figure out a way to download all the posts in a certain blog easily. For instance, let’s say I want to download all the posts from Steve Pavlina’s blog before an upcoming trip. How would I do this? I can manually use the “infinite scrolling” feature to get them all but it takes a long time and is tedious.

    Any suggestions? Might there be a better RSS reader for this?

    I roll through a lot of my blogs via Google Reader at work. Most of what I look at is related to my work, some of it isn’t. If my network guys took an interest in me, what would they see? A lot of time in Google Reader, or every blog that Google Reader is set to tap? If they can see everything, is there a way to prevent that? Short of setting up a proxy server (though not ruled out as an option)… Thanks!

    I’m looking for some really good business blogs to add to my google reader that are worthwhile following on an ongoing basis. Can you make and recommendations? I have Seth Godin’s already. Thanks!

    It would also be helpful if you told me why you liked these blogs.

  11. I’ve been using Listen, but I can’t always find a podcast that I want to listen to. I heard that Google Reader expands the choices. How do I find podcasts and download them using Google Reader? Or, is there another good podcast player that’s better? (I used to use iTunes till I exchanged my iPhone for an Evo. Love the Evo tho!)

  12. I am really nuts about BBC programmes and after long last decided to listen to the podcasts from BBC. I have a lot of feeds on my google reader page from the website of the BBC but I can’t see how I can take these from my computer to the MP3 player. How can I ‘download’ these podcasts on my computer and /or MP3 player? Where are the files of these podcasts?
