I love reading articles that make me want to do something. Today I was reading this post on ReadWriteWeb and it begged for me to participate. The question was, basically, “what new feature would you like to see in any Google product”.
I’m a Google fanboy, I admit, and the two apps that I can not live without are Gmail and Reader. These two products are often in two browser tabs anytime I’m at my machine. So, what I would like to see, or at least ponder a bit longer, is how could these two products be combined?
Take a second and go look at each one. They look REALLY REALLY similar, right? So, could something like this be what I need?
It’s not a full mockup, but you get the idea. Now, let’s take it a step further and really get to something I want. Post comments in Reader…
I think it would be great for Reader to be able to import comments, and lay them out in a fashion similar to how an email conversation in Gmail looks/works. I know this is not an easy task, but starting off with some of the major blogging engines, hmmm, perhaps Blogger at least, would be a start.
Imagine something like this:
I would love to see something like that. 🙂
