Sometimes, they just don’t get it

Google, is an incredibly shortsighted and rather stupid decision, has decided to shutter Google Reader on July 1 of this year.

Google is a leviathan in web services and I have to use a few of their services out of sheer convenience. Reader was one of them. (I hate their mail program.) I track my 167 feeds with ease and I’m able to send articles to the Babalu team with relative ease. Now, that will all be gone, and sorely missed. I’m trying out an alternative on the web that was recommended to me: Feedly. I’ll report over the next couple of weeks if I like it enough to keep it.

BTW, someone else found out about Google’s decision to kill Reader and he was rather pissed, as are the rest of us Reader users.
