I really don’t understand why I still see “I miss Google Reader” comments from otherwise smart and sensible people. There are a bunch of really good RSS apps and services available these days, all of them under regular, active development.
You don’t need Google. Stop wishing they would do this or that, or add a feature you’d like, or continue supporting an app you use, or fix a bug that annoys you. They don’t give a crap about you or how well their products work for you. They just want your data so they can sell it.
