Breaking Tech News: (From the National Post on August 20th, 2008: "For the online, friend obsessed, FriendFeed rounds up all those internet updates your friends make to their online Web sites and places them on one relatively spartan page for you to view.

Whether they've updated their FaceBook status, uploaded photos to Flickr, Talked on Twitter, or found a cool Web site on StumbleUpon, you'll be in the loop.")
