Told you so
For those who already watch Netflix like it’s their job, Netflix is now offering you the chance to make it your job: The company is searching for a Tagger, one of the elite few who are tasked with reviewing Netflix content, then assigning it to categories such as “Suspenseful Rogue-Cop Movies” and “

Can anyone please recommend an RSS feed reader that you like? I have been using bloglines, but a few days ago they introduced unacceptable changes to the UI, and I'm looking for a replacement.
