    "Leave a flower for a deceased Google product."

    Google Reader joins graveyard of dead Google products - Slate Magazine

    I actually think it's understandable to "try stuff out and keep what works", being forced to commit to every experiment would be stupid; but that they're now really making a point out of turning their back on RSS of all things, that kinda annoyed me. I don't really use any of their products other than the search engine, but this is not a good omen regarding their true, undying love for open standards vs. "walled gardens".

    Don't rely too heavily on third parties and free services where you can avoid it.. maybe Google can help get that finally through to people :D
