Google Reader Now Has One Day Left to Live


I’ve been playing around a bit more with RSS readers over the past week. Here’s a very brief update on the three I’ve spent the most time with:

I’m using NewsBlur as my default reader, with The Old Reader bookmarked for occasions when I need to search my feeds. I’d switch to TOR if it retrieved full text from partial RSS feeds, but it doesn’t. (And no, I’ve found that most of the full-text retrieval utilities don’t work reliably. The one built into NewsBlur is great.)

Obviously, the feature set you care about might vary from mine, but these are the things that matter to me. Just thought I’d pass it along.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
