Re: Sad news regarding google reader



I didn't know Emacs was accessible in Windows. How did you pull it off? Do you have Emacspeak on there?

What has wiki.emacs.org/ got to offer in the way of self-contained rss
readers compatible with emacs?  I need to do work on my windows emacs
installation to get it up to where the Linux installation is but it
would be nice to have a self-contained rss reader inside of emacs
working on both platforms.

The sad part isn't that google reader is going away. The sad part is
this offering ran other RSS agrigators out of business and now they
pull this rug out from under us.  We need to go back to self contained
RSS readers.  the bad part is so many reader clients such as what run
on mobile devices use Reader exclusively and do not store RSS feeds
locally.  What would be much sadder is to have RSS go away entirely
and we would be forced to use web interfaces for all our news sources.
  I love RSS agrigation whether it is done locally on a computer or
mobile device or if it is cloud based.  The main thing Reader was good
for was you could sync your RSS feeds between different devices.

We should all realize that we as users of Google's free services are
not their customers! the only customers Google has is its advertisers.
  They couldn't make any money with Reader so throw it away along with
any other free services they offer.

If you haven't heard, Google is shutting down Google Reader on July 1.
Maybe it'll keep on chugging and just not be supported, but I don't
think this is the case. I doubt Google has done much to support Google
Reader in the last few years anyway. I think this is more of a retasking
of the compute services used to serve up Google Reader. I haven't heard
of it being integrated into any other services. The rumor is that RSS is
considered irrelevant now and Google is trying to drive more traffic
into social networking offerings like Google Plus. I think our hope is
that someone else will provide a similar service with the same open
API's Google Reader used.

What sad news!  I use google reader every day.  I hope if that is the
case, they integrate it into something else.

I also use www.google.com/ig <http://www.google.com/ig> customized
google home page - I can get all my bookmarks no matter where I am in
the world and other things right there where I need them.  Google said
that was going to go, but it is still there and I use it all the time.

Oh, what a cruel world!

     Is anyone else as disappointed as me about the news Google plans to
     retire
     reader soon? I've really enjoyed using google reader since Raman
     added the
     greader client.

     Any recommendations on other good RSS readers/aggregators for emacs
     which
     provides similar functionality to greader?
