Entering a space swarming with competitors, Cnet has launched its Newsburst online RSS Reader.
Newsburst doesn't do anything that any other RSS reader can't, except that users get to see news items selected by the Cnet editors. But the service also heavily pushes Cnet's reports.
I am puzzled about the ratio behind this new venture. The service doensn't offer anything new. If Cnet thinks the RSS is a good idea, they might want to consider launching a free internet provider in Europe, or even better, start on that offers flat fee dial up service. That too once was a promising technology where too many providers were fighting over customers and where in the end everybody lost.
