The death of Google Reader,what will you use?
3/19/13

Google Reader will be gone July 1,2013.

I used it for many years as a simple way to keep up on the headlines.

Found an alternative that seems to work well for me,NewsFox,a Firefox addon.

What will you use?

Feedly works great- IOS and Android apps. You won’t miss it.

Seriously, I’d never head of Google Reader and I’m kind of tech savvy. You’re the only one I’ve ever heard mention it too. I’m guessing that’s why it’s going away....good luck!

It was a good product,to bad Google couldn't figure out a way to make money off it.

Gotta make money to stay in business,unless you're the Federal Government,then you can just print it;)

I paid a $1,000 (plus sales tax) (on sale) for my Google Reader, and now it’s going out?

Never heard of it. Guess I will just stick with lurking here or occasionally jumping to the foxnews live feed as needed.

I also do not Chat, Twit, or IM so no great loss as far as I can see.

Whatever is available for the specific needs as required. Which, incidentally, is how I originally came by this online Handle.

For instance; 386 w 8Megs mem as a telephone answering and messagebox server, 486DX4-120 w 16Megs mem as a Security 4-cam timelapse server switchable to a P200 w 32Megs 8-cam additional video recorder as necessary, AMD K5-300 w 64Megs as a Linux Fileserver and NAS scheduled backup and CD-burner -but I think you get the picture.

More advanced units are used for CAD/CAM, Spice, Mechanical Stress Analysis, and plain old DVD decryption and backups as necessary.

Online, Foxnews online live video feed for news -and FR, of course, along with several online sites for downloading past episodes of enjoyable TV series episodes like NCIS, Leverage, Burn Notice and others for viewing whenever I wish and the occasional Skype messaging for family and friends or Linux Messaging Services for quick texting now and again.

Takes care of most needs, I feel.

I was just trying to look into Feedly but my college student is home on spring break and I’m low on bandwidth.
