I was at first pretty upset to hear the demise (or the "retiring" as Google put it) of Google Reader. Over the years I have come to depend on it.

I am subscribed to over 180 feeds and I keep up with most of my professional news through both the Windows and iPhone versions that nicely sync with each other so that an item marked as read on my iPhone syncs with Windows.

Its no exaggeration to say that Google Reader is was my information life blood. At first I could not imagine how I could live without it. Until, I discovered Feedly. It has almost identical functionality and it is beautifully implemented. So much so, I prefer it the old Goggle Reader. What's more it literally took me minutes to switch.

If you are in the same boat as me and have not found an alternative yet - then take a look at Feedly. It seems they have acquired more than 500,000 Google Reader users in recent days.

Seems Hitler did not take it too well either :-)
