Bloglines announced an update today – the first since the Ask Jeeves acquisition (and the IAC acquisition, come to think of it.)
Starting today, people can track the shipping progress of package deliveries from some of the world’s largest parcel shipping companies—FedEx, UPS, and the United States Postal Service– within their Bloglines MyFeeds page. Package tracking in Bloglines encompasses international shipments, in English. Bloglines readers can look forward to collecting more kinds of unique-to-me information on Bloglines in the near future, such as neighborhood weather updates and stock portfolio tracking.
This is interesting. It’s sort of Bloglines meets search (Google et al can track packages etc.) meets …. Topix….meets…well, pretty much anything. I can’t quite grok this, honestly, which is why I am looking forward to talking with Mark, Bloglines CEO (now VP/GM at Ask). Anything else I should ask him?
