Whatever else is wrong with the USA and their control over the DNS system, their provisions to guarantee free speech are important.

The UK are working hard to bring tech companies to their shores - and it's working, with Australian company Atlassian making the shift. Here's my story about how they approached us to highlight the benefits of moving - R&D tax concessions, better corporate tax rates, and more.

Items that are left as unread for 30 days are automatically  and silently marked as read. I discovered this the hard way when several items that I'd been saving across a variety of feeds mysteriously vanished.

I guess people are expected to 'save' articles but coming from Google Reader my default behaviour is to leave some things as unread until such time as I can action them.

It is a confusing and unexpected default behaviour. Optimally it would be great if items that are marked as unread are left unread permanently, or if they must be marked as read (for back-end data management reasons or whatever), some notification to the user should be given so they can be 'saved' or otherwise dealt with.

Thanks for an otherwise awesome service!

This a little bit too short limit is on of those things that bugged me really about GR and it's still present in Feedly. Maybe it's in idea for Pro feature if it really has such a big impact on your resources? Make this history longer (90 or 180 days) for Pro users

I had a problem with my Fisher and Paykel Fresh 5.0 washing machine. Called the official F&P support line for it and they told me it would cost $120 just for someone to come out and look at it, parts extra. Didn't express any interest in what was wrong with it. I did a quick Google search and found P & L Sexton and from the one review (and the fact that he was really local) thought I'd give him a try. Called and he asked what the problem was; after I described it he said instantly he knew what it was and it would could $125 to fix it. Called him the next day to come out; within 10 minutes he was fixing it and then 5 minutes later it was completely fixed. He also threw in a replacement hose for one of my leaking ones. Awesome service, instant fix.
