I'm a Google loyalist. I like google's products and I use them. I *love* Gmail the most followed by the search engine and, of course, Blogger. Then comes (came) Reader. I like Drive too. And Google+, if only more people took that up I could just move fully from Facebook.
I nearly fell off my chair when I opened Reader to read Google is ending it. It makes no sense to me. Reader is brilliant, functional, pleasing on the eye and ever so simple. Oh how I love simple!
Since 2005, Reader has allowed me to read my favourite blogs in a really efficient and enjoyable way. From now, I will have to change (and here is this word again!) how I approach reading those.
Dear Google, I may not forgive you for this one. Really!
Do you use an RSS feeder to read blogs? Or do you go directly to the ones you want to read? Any tips on alternatives to Reader?
I will be testing available options to replace Reader in my life. I'll be posting about it possibly next week, if you're interested.
**Added later: Picasa, I definitely love Picasa!
