"Your sentences are so long," said a friend who teaches English at a local college, and I could tell she didn't quite mean it as a compliment. The copy editor who painstakingly went through my most recent book often put yellow dashes on-screen around my multiplying clauses, to ask if I didn't want to break up my sentences or put less material in every one.

The CanAm Spyder is a three-wheeled “reverse tricycle” roadster from the Canadian power sports company BRP. It may be the perfect vehicle for a four-wheeler transitioning to motorcycles.

That's partly because BRP also manufactures the Ski-doo snowmobile line and the Sea-doo watercraft line, as well as many varieties of all-terrain vehicles and side-by-side off-road vehicles.

With Google Reader set to shut down this summer, many other apps have come into the spotlight as possible alternatives to the popular RSS service. So here are some of the top free services we recommend as users prepare for Google Reader going dark July 1.

Google said earlier this month it would close its Reader service because of low usage, but a report says the company also killed the RSS platform because it did not want to commit a full staff to it to ensure the service complied with privacy laws. After having to agree to multi-million dollar settlements with government agencies, Google Chief Executive Larry Page has been adding lawyers, policy experts and others to each of its teams who can deal with compliance and privacy issues, a report by AllThingsD says.

Digg has received more than 800 comments on a blog that the social news website posted last week to announce it would develop a replacement for Google Reader, which is slated to shut down July 1. "That's more than we received when we told the world we were rebuilding Digg itself," the New York-based company said. "It's also proof that Google Reader users (and RSS devotees in general) are rabid information addicts with strong opinions. " PHOTOS: Top 10 must-have smartphone apps Users want Digg to keep the reader simple, make it fast, synchronize over multiple devices and make it easy to import data from Google Reader accounts, the site said Monday.

Digg is aiming to release a beta version of its RSS reader some time in June, ahead of the July 1 closing of Google Reader, but it may not be free. After Google announced it would be shutting down its RSS reader back in March, Digg promised users it would build a new platform that could replace Google Reader. Digg has been working on the new service as its top priority, and this week it announced more details about what may be included in the reader. Digg also alluded to the fact that it will probably charge for its reader.

LIKE me, you may have witnessed in the last few months the proliferation of little orange buttons emblazoned with the letters "RSS" or "XML" on travel websites. Although I knew in theory what kind of information these buttons might bring to my computer desktop, in practice I just didn't get it. Knowing that the acronym RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication didn't make it one bit simpler to understand.
