Web clips in gmail allows you to add a valid feed by searching.Its mostly used to read headlines.Since it does not support to add any OMPL file, its one of the most unwanted features in gmail. However there is one way you can utilize it.
Google Reader allows you to share feed items I.e posts which can be accessed through your public profile, which can be added to web clips, which act as a notification.The only and most important advantage I see here is if any body shares a good news, it will be available in your Web clips.
"What I’d Buy Instead of an Interactive Whiteboard
This week was a real humdinger for me. I spent the better part of it buried under hateful emails from a district technology director in Louisiana who had read my recent post arguing that Interactive Whiteboards were a waste of money.
I was really taken aback by the venom and spite in his words. His first email expressed “shock” that “someone like me” could ever be named Teacher of the Year in any district. He called me “self-centered and self-serving” and suggested that my writing was a “poison” corrupting conversations about technology."
