Hey Lifehacker, I like reading my news using Feedly (not that Google Reader is RIP). For Australian headlines I have tried a number of news sites but find that they repeat articles and flood too many at me. The result is that I don't read the articles and I eventually unsubscribe.

Feedly has been very popular with Lifehacker readers as a replacement for Google Reader, which has less than a month to live now. To get around that problem, Feedly is developing its own API for when Google kills Reader off for good. If you're a fan of alternate readers such as Reeder, Press or gReader, you'll now also be able to access the Feedly API.
