Windows 7: Need some information about software which will keep me up to date

Need some information about software which will keep me up to date


I have a few questions about certain types of software and was wondering if anyone could help?

1) I'm quite an avid follower of new kickstarter and indiegogo projects and was wondering if there was anything similar to RSS feed about keeping me up to date on the projects I'm interested in?

2) The RSS widget I get with my windows 7 ACER Z3731 is really poor. It updates articles from 4 days previous but the upside is I get articles which seem to pass me by on the actually website I browse. Can anyone recommend better?

3) Does anyone know of a way to display all my information in one area? Say example FB, Twitter, Email, RSS, chat, etc. etc. all displayed as soon as my computer starts up? I'm sure Google did something like that a while back but I hear its gone. Any suggestions?

Thank you all for your time.

Welcome to Seven Forums Dr Cross. Yes iGoogle is long gone. I'm not sure there is a complete replacement for it. The RSS feed reader I use now is Feedly. This can display your Facebook and Twitter feeds as well as RSS.

Sorry. It looks like they have removed the facebook and Twitter feeds.
