Everything Yahoo!
All the Yahoo! services linked from one page.

My Yahoo! released an upgrade beta the other day. Besides the visual facelift, the content model is now open. This means that you can add any RSS feed to your My Yahoo! page instead of only selecting from the Yahoo! components offered. The idea is to make RSS feeds more transparent to the average web user. Expert users will continue to use Bloglines or the reader of their choice, but I can see how some feeds, like say a photo feed from Flickr, would fit right into my My Yahoo! page.

Eventually, someone will write the killer app that makes consuming feeds as commonplace as reading pages, but we're not there yet. This My Yahoo! upgrade is a step in the right direction though.
