News Reader is a strange bird. In developed countries (e.g., for
G1G1v2), much information is available as RSS feeds. Therefore the
XO *should* have an RSS-accessing activity.
From Dec 2007 on, I have always had trouble getting News Reader to
"see" __any__ RSS feed. It normally tells me something like "there
ain't no such thing". HOWEVER, the percentage of attempts that have
been failing has been decreasing over time -- for me, News Reader
works much more reliably in recent Joyride than it did in Update.1.
Last time I used NewsReader was at approximately Joyride 2444 - it
worked for me then. [To run News Reader, I need to go someplace
with an AP.] I seem to remember it having worked for me on 759 as well.
