I hear you +Jeffrey Meyer
, but I didn't mean "replace", what I was trying to say was consolidate. Which is something Google so desperately needs to do since there are a lot of overlapping services. Google Reader, Currents and News were a few of them, so if Google's goal now is to consolidate all of this into Currents (which has only been out for 2 years) then I'm all for it. They can now focus their efforts into making Currents that much better. And if you haven't noticed, Google has been doing alot
of consolidating lately (which I'm all for). The core functionality of Reader isn't entirely lost when using Currents, so I wouldn't be surprised if Google starts doing more with it (just check out the latest update). Google Wave was an experimental project solving a problem no one had, so no one really knew how to use it or take advantage of it, not really the same.
