I admit that I am a suspicious person by nature but really – does it make sense to you that of all their questionable products, Google picked GoogleReader to eliminate? Don’t even get me started about Google+ and did you know that Urban Dictionary already has a definition for Glasshole?
Ok let me state for the record that GoogleReader is how I read the internet. Period. Call me a Luddite circa 2001 but I’m still interested in original thought and personal perspective. I use GoogleReader to cobble together my own weird collection of news sources, recipe sites, decorating advice, humorous and personal blogs and presidential archives. That’s not what Twitter gives me let alone the godforsaken Facebook.
There’s something about this that doesn’t smell right to me. Could it be the old Classic Coke ploy to announce the end of a product and then at the last minute, it’s saved from extinction but only to take on a different form?
I don’t know but this is one more reason that Google disgusts me and I’m sick of the discussion already.
