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?

I downloaded the subscriptions file from my google reader account and is trying out different desktop readers. Many of them are extremely good now in comparison to when gR was launched.
It will take some time getting used to i guess, but i will just have to cope.

Oh well, in any case: Now there is only one single product i use made by google as they keep shutting down the stuff i like. It was rather painful to move away from gmail and get all my contacts to update their adress lits but one thing of googles that i still enjoy is youtube but ofcourse never via a web-browser any more as the "minitube" application is so darn awesome and still getting better.
