Google "We launched Google Reader in 2005 in an effort to make it easy for people to discover and keep tabs on their favorite websites. While the product has a loyal following, over the years usage has declined. So, on July 1, 2013, we will retire Google Reader. Users and developers interested in RSS alternatives can export their data, including their subscriptions, with Google Takeout over the course of the next four months." This makes me very, very sad. Any good alternatives - alternatives with Windows Phone and Metro applications, that is?

Not only this bit of news, but they also yanked all ad blockers from the Play store, and there's a video which indicates they're porting Google Now to iOS, which is another assault in Google's war on Android.

In other words, Google has been f'ing up all day ;)
