I read news mostly online. So I bookmarked and pinned many news website through times. I have also countless RSS feeds and Google news alerts in my mail.
All these are good but navigating through them became very time consuming. The main problem is the time I need to select the information that interests me. For example, RSS brings directly to me many articles from the same source but poorly discriminates between interesting and non-interesting topics (sometimes you can specialized as "Times - Sport" instead of just "Times" but it is still limited). Or Google News Alert brings to my emails box many articles but many irrelevant ones too (e.g. "maths" will bring ads for maths tutoring"). Also, Google does not know which journals I consider serious and which ones are not.
Sorry for this long introduction but I think that explaining what is a problem with the numerous existing solutions helps better than a requirement list.
So, here is what I am looking for: a clever software that would learn which topics I like and which journals I prefer. YouTube does it relatively well for videos, and Facebook and Google ads target me very accurately, so I guess there is a hope!
More precise requirements:
- Windows 10
- I would prefer an online application than installing a software on my computer. My browsers are Chrome and Firefox. Internet Explorer if the two other ones cannot be used. I would prefer to register to a website rather than adding a module in my browser.
- No smartphone only applications please.
- Free or cheap subscription.
- I don't mind if the software isn't really precise at first. Convenience is more important than efficiency at the beginning.
