PageFlakes

I was digging around atlas.asp.net today and looked at one of their Showcases called Pageflakes. Cool entry in the start-page space.

I’ve been using Sage to handle my RSS needs, but it doesn’t stay in sync between home and my two offices, never mind my laptop. So, I’ve migrated all my feed needs to Pageflakes to see how well it fills my needs.

Of course I couldn’t just use a new tool. I had to figure out how to expand on it. First i just created a web page flake and pointed it at one of my webapps. Kinda the lotek way to get an app onto the grid. I figured there had to be a way to create proper flakes and clicking on the Developers link I was rewarded with step-by-step instructions on how to create custom flakes. Very cool.

What I really need to make this my main page is a way to sync my Palm Desktop to its address book and To do list. Now that would be useful.
