A friend of mine posted about Google Reader over on his blog so I decided to check it out. I haven't even scratched the surface of all the features it offers, but it does give me a centralized view for the RSS feeds I subscribe to.
The problem I've traditionally had is that I use Mozilla suite at home (Thunderbird, Firefox) but use Microsoft suite at work (Outlook, IE). This made it difficult to always get the same views of my feeds. Now I don't have to worry about it.
