I use venus (http://intertwingly.net/code/venus/) like the popular
planet.<project>.org sites but just as a personal aggregation (mostly)
in lieu of any desktop or mobile agg program:


Maybe it's just me but I've never really longed for the "mark as read"
feature that is the piece obviously missing. 

While looking for the intertwingly link ( I always look for venus code
at the older planetplanet.org and wonder why I can't find the current
code ;) help jdub! ) I saw that there's some work going into giving
venus some of those features:

Agreed. Though, maybe just due to low volume, this hasn't bothered me
much. But it's also totally possible that I'm missing gems and enjoying
the bliss of ignorance.
