Google launched a test version of a new service on Friday that gathers reports from syndicated news sites and blogs across the Web.

The program, called Google Reader, aggregates news and updates from selected sites. It lets users subscribe to material from the sites and create a reading list that they can sort and organize. Users can post news items to their blogs or send them to friends via e-mail directly through the Reader site, Google said.

Instead of continuously checking your favorite sites for updates, you can let Google Reader do it for you.”
