Y'know how annoying it is when you find a TV show you really like and then it's taken off the air? Or you LOVE a certain food item and they decide to discontinue it? These things happen to me all the time. I'm really thinking it's me. I mean - do these things happen to anyone as often as they happen to me? Some omniscient someone, giver and taker of all things, knows when I like something - anything - and takes it away from me.
Not too long ago Google announced they were shutting down iGoogle which I use as my home page. I haven't bothered to look for something else yet but there - that's another example. I really LIKE iGoogle and they are taking it away. It MUST be me.
Now it's Google Reader.
We launched Google Reader in 2005 in an effort to make it easy for people to discover and keep tabs on their favorite websites. While the product has a loyal following, over the years usage has declined. So, on July 1, 2013, we will retire Google Reader. Users and developers interested in RSS alternatives can export their data, including their subscriptions, with Google Takeout over the course of the next four months.
Oh, and I DO like Blogger so get ready all you blogspot people, that's probably next. I'm really, really sorry.
**added - HAVE I EVER MENTIONED HOW BAD I AM WITH CHANGE????
Ahem. Just sayin'.
