"It’s nice to see all of the work that AOL has put into this, but the most important detail today is that the service can’t function under the strain. I am still unable to actually use AOL Reader to do anything, and in fact just a couple minutes ago I was kicked out and forced to sign in again. If AOL Reader isn’t stable enough to keep users logged in then it’s not ready for prime time.AOL Reader Opens to the Public, Collapses Under the Strain
I can understand why AOL felt they had to rush things; the Readerpocalypse is only 7 days away and that doesn’t leave them much time to if they want to get any traction in this niche. That’s why Digg is making sure to get Digg Reader out this week, but one important difference between Digg and AOL is that the latter rushed things."
