Today is the day Google Reader ( RSS aggregation tool ) service will no longer be available after end of day today..

A lot has been written about this topic. No need to beat a dead horse, but I must say this one hurt, as there were no good replacements until just recently.

I love waking up having my coffee, and reading my newsfeed on my tablet.   I use a Newsreader App, but the back-end and management of all feeds were centralized in  Google Reader.   It  replaced the reading the morning newspaper routine…

 

For me, I waited until the last minute and end up signing up with digg.com/reader.  The process of importing my feeds was simple and flawless. The web reader is clean and fast.   I am not sure yet if it will work with my table newsreader app, but I am hopeful.

Google Reader ,  you will be missed.

Thanks for many memories over the years!

 

As an aside:

So many products retired out of the Google portfolio… A good list at:
