Another one bites the dust

Filed under: tech — zproxy @ 11:50 am

Remember the old days, when Google sincerely thought that Google+ was the future of Google? That future is no more. As of this month, Google no longer automatically creates a Google+ account for new users to Gmail.

The moment has passed.

[…] RSS is my window to the world. – Slashdot

Today I learned another very highly used service bites the dust.

WARNING: Total media blackout 

From your 2,916 subscriptions, over the last 30 days you read 6,392 items, clicked 423 items, starred 0 items, and emailed 41 items.
Since December 25, 2010 you have read a total of 300,000+ items.

  • It is bad enough that the links stop working, images disappear and the videos at YouTube get pulled.
  • It is bad enough that blogs stop publishing valuable content or change their address.
  • It is hard enough to get someone blogging.
  • It is hard enough to get someone to read blogs.

I used to aske people I met did they have a blog. Now, without google reader, I am not sure how to follow them…

Google Reader is optimized to help you sift through many news items quickly. … and that’s something these newspaper-like apps cannot accomplish.

The Intenet.

I feel there is a need for a new service. A personal internet service. A service which will keep tabs on all the content for you. Works on your devices. Can not be discontinued. And keeps a copy of everything. Like a personal internet archive. And integrates with Google Glass, of course.

By phone I meant it will serve as a personal internet cache, your agent, always with you wherever you travel. You can connect to it from any laptop and it will synchronize feeds for you.

  1. All google reader competitor have gone down because too much people were migrating at once.
    We can see it at a huge vacuum left by a big guy, hope smaller companies will fill it. Such move are benefit for opportunities.

    My mantra is that the best software is the one you do not notice… google is thinking otherwise… just hope they don’t discontinue the search engine ! 🙂

    From your 30 subscriptions, over the last 30 days you read 217 items, clicked 54 items, starred 0 items, and emailed 0 items.
    Since June 25, 2009 you have read a total of 17,528 items.

    Rest in peace.
