The corpse may be barely cold, but Google poured a little salt in Reader's fatal, self-inflicted wound even as the service's founder reminisced on what he might have done differently if it was launched today.
With mere days to spare before Google Reader takes a dirt nap, the folks at Digg have started rolling out their new Reader service, complete with an iOS app that should be hitting the App Store any moment.
With only 11 days to spare, the folks at Feedly have launched their Google Reader replacement, which promises to keep your existing RSS feeds and continue serving them to all of your favorite apps for years to come.
Well, what a lame way to end an otherwise normal Wednesday on the internet. As of July 1, Google will shut down its ubiquitous RSS service, Reader. After almost 8 years as the go-to spot for keeping tabs on everything from news to blogs, we'll all have to find a new way to gobble up internet information later this year.
