"Meanwhile, the shuttering of Google Reader is forcing FeedDemon to close its doors after 10 faithful years of service"
REALLY?? This is what happens when you just copy and paste kevin, on tom's I don't read carefully anymore I just come here to get highlights but it's a shame that I find such mistakes when I'm not even caring about what I read. I feel really sad to what tom's has come to, it's been a 10 years journey for me (I'm a visitor since 2003) and since then it's been downhill.
of course I won't tell what is the mistake, that would ruin the fun now wouldn't it...
An just like many others one day your hot the next day your not, just to name a few Mozilla Thunderbird, Microsoft`s Messenger-Hotmail and now Google Reader. Also I started using Google reader late last year for a couple months then dumped it for something like Mozilla Firefox browser. But what do I know here are a couple of RSS Readers that are better then Google Reader.
