Google has just announced that their RSS service Google Reader will be shut down on July 1, 2013. The reason why?
There are two simple reasons for this: usage of Google Reader has declined, and as a company we’re pouring all of our energy into fewer products. We think that kind of focus will make for a better user experience.
Translation: Only the geeks use this, we can't provide adds through it, and we want to move on. I am not at all surprised by this but am still sad to see it go.
