And I am furious.
See, Google Reader is the single best web tool I have. It’s how I follow hundreds of blogs. It’s how I keep up with news. I’m pretty sure I use it more than email and Twitter.
I don’t need it to be fancy, but it must be completely web-based. I don’t want any of that ‘magazine style’ crap. I don’t want something that goes all Facebook and thinks it knows what I want to see. I just need the ability to create and arrange folders and see lists of my feeds. That’s it. (I am seriously OCD about feeds.)
I don’t give a flying fuck about what Google has done to Reader in the past. I never shared shit with it. I wasn’t always fond of the design tweaks, but there was nothing I didn’t get used to. It’s EVERYTHING I NEED AND NOTHING I DON’T.
I would actually pay for that shit. Seriously. Google, I would pay. It’s that useful and that vital to how I consume the web.
Damn it, Google. No amount of Veronica Mars is going to fix this. YOU’RE BREAKING MY HEART.
