I still lament the loss of Google Reader, and haven't found a replacement that I'm happy with yet.
Feedbin costs money but I personally think it's fine to toss a little cash at a service like this to make sure it stays working.
I'd love a good quality eink tablet that runs recent stock versions of Android with play store. Ideally I wouldn't have to jailbreak. Surely there is a big market for this - there are hundreds of color screen tablets like - surely a few eink ones are possible? Any suggestions?
I bought a Kobo Glo (which I'm very happy with, incidentally), intending to hack in a hardware page-turn key (or even a cordless wifi one using an ESP8266 if possible), but I could never work out how I would be able to do it.
The ebook reader companies, like most corporations, want the consumer to be locked into their ecosystem. I assume some of the cost of the reader is offset by the profit from ebook sales. So it would be against their business model to sell one where you could just easily install any software you want.
I know that there's a serial port inside most kobos, I wonder if there's a way to get it to turn pages with a command through serial. If that was possible I could use an attiny, and that would probably fit inside the case.
I am looking at the Onyx Boox Max as well - it also has the same OS version support but perhaps a better processor. The price has kept me away but I window shop it often :).
You think they would do better as an affiliate model for subscriptions (e.g. NYT gives 15 free articles per month to some readers), but maybe inoreader already does that.
I'm working on generating perfect (all images, all pages) .mobi periodical files from rss feeds, send me a mail (in my profile) if you want to test a MVP when it is ready.
