    Several times per day. It's excellent, although lacks a couple of features I'd quite like.

    I'd also like the ability to tag / label stuff for later reference - the only way to do this at the moment is by starring it.

    I also star 'read-later' items, which sometimes conflict with my real favourites :P

    I also seem to be having issues with the Penny Arcade feed where approx. 10 items get marked as read every now and then..

    Which just marks them as read, and biases the recommendation towards stuff you don't want to read. I want something that does *not* mark items as read (and ideally also tells Google that I have no interest in the content), but removes them from my view.

    I also star 'read-later' items, which sometimes conflict with my real favourites :P
    I tend to star stuff for posterity, when what I really want to do is use something like GMail's labels. I don't usually have a list of "to-read" items; in most cases if I haven't read it by the end of the day, I don't care about it.

    I don't read Penny Arcade sorry, so can't help you there.

    They could implement something similar to what they have in Gmail - Priority Inbox, marking items as either important or unimportant..
