For a while, I used the RSS reader Newsgator.  The cool thing about this reader was that when I was at work, I could check my feeds online, but when I got home, I could synchronize my desktop reader (which is more powerful than its online counterpart) to recognize what I had saved online.  Pretty handy.

But without fundamental privacy safeguards in place, this means that Newsgator can tap into my online and desktop activity and use it however it sees fit.  Don’t get me wrong, I love the convenience of desktop-online sychnronicity (and for free, no less!), but should it be an either/or option when it comes to privacy?
