Here’s a problem that most people face on a daily basis: you’re too busy to get to all the great content that’s out there on the Internet. The solution: read smarter to save time.  Through the magic of RSS, sites like Netvibes and uStart aggregate your entire daily reading list into a single dashboard, saving you the time of having to scroll through NYTimes.com, WSJ.com, and Buzzfeed to get your fix of world news and cat memes. Both Netvibes and uStart also feature robust widget options allowing you to follow just about everything from one site, including Facebook, Twitter, the weather, sports scores, and…you get the point.
