How about "Hey, where did commenting go?"

Anyway, I wonder how good they are at stripping out only the irrelevant parts of a page. Has anyone used this on OS X? And wouldn't it be more functional to make an app that worked with various pieces of software rather than integrating it into a particular application?

Why spread it across various pieces of software in the first place?

Doesn't sound much different than Google Reader or an RSS feed, so...

Someone stole the FARK website and replaced it with an exact replica!

That scoundrel!

I've been using a Chrome extension which sends the page i'm on to my Kindle for about a year. It works flawlessly. This isn't new.

Since when is parsing text considered as "app"?

BFD...

AN "app"...DOH

Isnt stealing content and displaying it without the part that pays for it going to land them in a pile of legal shiat?

You haven't seen the new ads for blackjack and hookers? Actually, forget about Fark...

It is the same as what Instapaper has been doing for years.

Exactly! I couldn't remember that name, but I know I had seen something just like it.

BTW, it's also what Flipboard does on mobile. Gets the content and create a virtual mazagine with it. Pretty cool.

Oddly enough, Fark is pretty worthless on a Kindle since you can't follow a link, since they automatically open in a new window, and the Kindle browser only supports a single window.

This extension has been in the Chrome store for a while now, I occasionally use it to push longer we articles to my iPad/Kindle app to read later. Flipboard is better, though.

None of the e-ink screens have them though.

For the cooking tips or the cleaning tips? 

Heh, PLEASE don't ask why that didn't convert to "web" in my mind as it probably should have.
