Use Google Reader Within Microsoft Outlook
This is an old trick, but some of you may find it handy. I forgot about this myself until I read this Lifehacker post this morning. You can easily tell Outlook to use Google Reader when you click the RSS Feeds area. Just right click on the RSS Feeds item from your folder view and select properties. On the Home Page tab copy and paste the full URL to Google Reader. Click apply and you are all done. When you clicked the RSS Feeds link now it will fire up Google Reader in the reading pane.
