Google takes aim at Digg and Fark with Reader Play

Google is adding a splash of fun to RSS feeds with a new service called Reader Play.

The service pulls in the most popular pictures and videos from across the web, and presents them in a full-screen slideshow. Users can vote for their favourite items, with Reader Play promising to personalise the feed based on your preferences.

Reader Play appears to be Google's attempt at stealing some thunder from aggregators such as Digg, Fark.com and Reddit, which regularly showcase the type of humorous videos and images that are found on Play.
