My Times

NYtimes.com launched their personalized service, My Times, in beta. It's basically an RSS Reader with some Netvibes-ish UI.


Apparently, MyTimes is lame. But, you already knew that.

Arrington's beef is that you can't add any source, which I guess is true (so far), but it's hardly a closed system. You can add BBC, WSJ, WashPost, HuffPost, MSNBC.... and so on. I think it's amazing that the New York Times (The New York Times!) is allowing competitor links on their site.

I guess I'm left wondering why we need Yet Another Web Based Aggregator (can't wait for the "Add to MyTimes" badges to start appearing all over the goddamn place). Huzzah to the Times, I guess. Really, I'm just bitter that I'm not one of the cool kids who got a golden ticket to play with their new toy. Guess I should stop using Bug Me Not.
