I understand there used to be a concise listing of IDG publications' headlines on their website, but that's gone. So I looked into RSS feeds for the same thing, to keep them all in one place, but I'm finding for each publication a large number of feeds, with a LOT of duplication. Case in point:
There are four feeds for "daily news and views", and then 32(!) feeds under various subjects. This would be fine if the subject feeds were just subsets of the other feeds, but they're not; they have headlines that don't appear anywhere in the "main" feeds.
That would be okay, just a few minutes' bother to sign up for all of them, but I get many headlines that appear several times -- a significant inconvenience to wade through. (Example: "U.S. defends Internet free speech (unless it's embarassing)" [sic] appears on Tech & society, Endpoint security, Government, Legal, Business intelligence and Security feeds.)
Can anyone think of a solution to this? Some way to get all the articles without the ridiculous level of duplication? A blog reader that eliminates duplication would be something, but i'd like to find a reader-independent solution. (Incidentally, there are a few related publicaitons for which I have the same problem -- CIO, PC World, MacWorld, ComputerWorld. But for now I'm assuming that they'd have the same solution, if any. Anyone knows otherwise, please do mention.)
