Farewell Google Reader

| Comments

Google has announced that they are closing Google Reader. This is quite sad for me: Reader is (in my opinion) the best feed reader available at the moment, and one of the only reasons my wife and I have a Google account in the first place.

I’m sure that Google realizes that their main service doesn’t require a log in to use … but without logging in, we produce less valuable metrics for them to sell ads.

I’m sure that Gmail is too profitable for them to consider it now, but if they ever get rid of it, there won’t be any reason for my wife and I, at least, to log in.
