MiniBoxs Misses "E" and the Mark

Another competitor for the likes of OriginalSignal and PopURLs is MiniBoxs (what happened to the "e?") which is an RSS aggregator billing itself as the "Net's first RSS magazine." If that's what this is, then I don't think they're the first.

It's a nice-looking site and the editors do a good job of choosing feeds to include. I like the
Buzz! page, which aggregates the most popular items from many social news sites like Digg, Reddit,, Furl, TailRank, etc. This is similar to other sites of this type, but they have a pretty comprehensive list here.

All in all, I prefer PopURLs and OriginalSignal, but my true preference will likely always be rolling my own.

MiniBoxs Buzz!
