Re: Re: [newtech-1] Google reader is dead

Doubtful. A lot of what I've read says they pulled out because it's a small, neglected, underfunded but still overly expensive team (particularly on the recommendations side) and see that the market is once again ripe for RSS reader innovation, which Reader itself squashed back in 05 or 06. So, Google+ is getting all the love, Reader hasn't done much/been supported in doing much to capitalize on their early gains, nor to continue innovating, yet the market seems ripe for innovation, so why hang around with the ugly big iron in the back room while all the cool kids are out being social, reading RSS on mobile?

Not sure it's because they're too busy, but I'd imagine they presumed that more people are satisfied with curated reading apps (e.g. Zite) than RSS.
