Thanks to Life Hacker – and @JohnnyCanuck – I’m no longer distracted by Buzz when I open my GMail. Not that there’s anything wrong with Buzz but I use Twitter, and everyone and everything else uses Twitter. But so far all Buzz does is clone your Twitter and other social posts. If you want to Buzz your friends have to Buzz too – if they’re still on Twitter they won’t get your Buzzes. In essence, Buzz is like a glorified feed reader that lets you make comments and stuff to yourself – kind of like Google Reader (except I prefer and use Reader often during the day).
