It should be easy to catch up on the things that matter to us. However, I find it can be overwhelming. I am overwhelmed by constant news, information and alerts through online sources, media channels, and devices. Turns out I’m not alone. In a recent Forrester survey[1] Commissioned by Microsoft, we found that people, on average, spend seven hours a day online, regularly use six different sources, and check them five times a day.

There is a lot to make up, but there are only a limited number of hours in the day. I don’t want to waste time browsing through notifications, checking sources, and switching devices. Instead, I want to start with what matters. I want to start with articles of interest to me from publishers I trust. I want both headlines and content related to my interests. I want content on a variety of topics, all in one destination. I want to access this on my computer and my phone.
