Google reader replacements


Dreaded day is around the corner. Google will abandon their don't be evil motto and kill reader. In last three months looking for replacement I found three that does job sufficiently. I don't know which will prevail because I'm still using google reader.

The Old Reader is what google reader was few years ago. It's probably my first choice for now but it's too soon to know.

Aol Reader is newcomer and surprise because it wasn't anticipated like Digg reader was (which I didn't see yet). It looks like polished product in early stage.

Netvibes is more than a reader. It's dashboard kind of platform, but can easily be configured just to use as a reader.

+11
-I'm not really proud of my averaging in eurjpy, risking much for no good reason. If I don't know where to put stop or don't want to accept that it's time for stop it's better not to trade that trade
- I'm far better in those nice scalping situation when stop or gain is quick and definite

Petition to save Google Reader

If you use this product as much as I do I'm sure you will want to sign it. This petition right now has more then 100,000 signatures. It doesn't mean that it will make Google reverse it's decision of shutting down reader but if I ever wanted to express my opinion and vote it's now for this.
