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?

This just goes to show that everyone who thought Google had noble intentions with shutting off Exchange Active Sync was wrong.

They're turning off CalDAV and telling people to use the Calendar API. So much for standards.


Wait, didn't Microsoft just announce that they were writing a CalDAV-compliant client?

So now Google is shutting down CalDAV, except for "whitelisted developers." Is Microsoft a whitelisted developer?
