Microsoft’s Remarkable New RSS Reader

Larry remarks on Microsoft’s new beta RSS reader:

Their new beta RSS reader, which Dare Obasanjo points to, asks inane questions before letting you try it. For example, “what month did Florida become a state?” They of course provide a link to MSN Search for you. Funny thing though, my first instinct was to go to Google.

Guys, if you want to increase MSN Search usage, don’t try to trick me into it.

Something tells me that this isn’t exactly what Seth Godin means by “remarkable”.
