Zite calls itself a “personalized magazine” and we can safely say that this is true. It is essentially an RSS reader at its core, but the hardware that is the iPad has enabled that type of service to be wrapped up in such an attractive package that Zite is very much like a magazine – incredibly different from any RSS experience you’ve ever had.
It goes without saying that there is an abundance of great content freely available on the Web. The problem is that it can be difficult to organize it and to keep track of it. RSS readers have filled this void for a number of years, but we’re now stepping into a new era of reading content on the Web, and Zite is right in the middle of it.
