Earlier tonight, Steve Rubel asked “WIth Google Killing Products, Is Reader Next?” Gawd, let’s hope not!
So, Google has decided to kill a few products – and Steve is speculating that other Google products lacking a monetization strategy – like Google Reader – could be victims as well.
A few weeks back, I paid a hat tip to Google Reader – noting that Reader was about two years old and had continued to evolve and improve – for a geek like me anyway! – during that time.
The most recent improvements to Reader were especially fine – improving performance, etc. I noted at the time that “Google Reader is simply my favorite “go to” method for staying current with stuff I enjoy following on the web.”
I really do hope it stays that way.
