Great news: 'The Net' has been added to Netflix. Daft as it sounds, this film used to get me very excited about the promise of the web.

+Nate Lanxon Well as long as the nostalgia is worth it then I'll give it a go.

Got a new Airport Extreme station from Apple for a couple of weeks to review. So far, the signal strength is far better than my AP Express. But my question will be: do I really need to spend >£150 just to get decent Wi-Fi in my apartment? I'm guessing no. But probably will.

Fwiw. The Asus routers rock for signal strength. I put the tomato firmware on mine and it has been the best router I have owned (that's saying a lot as I tend to try everything..LOL)

Final Fantasy VII added to Steam, and Vine adds a channel to its app just for Cats. Today is a great day to be a nerd.

Farewell!

Going to Google Reader and getting a 404 page is like going to a childhood favourite theme park and seeing it full of corpses. Sad times. 

I still remember the day I switched from iGoogle to Google Reader. It was like taking training wheels off a bike and realising that not only did you not fall over, you went further, and you went faster.

That said, I've enjoyed using Feedly more in two days than I've felt like I enjoyed Google Reader at all in the last year. I've suffered real RSS fatigue, where "mark all as read" felt like some sort of weird drug to combat addiction, setting off signals in my brain akin to pleasure and relief. 

That was a bit dramatic. I only loaded G+ to post a picture of a cat sitting on a donkey.

Bye, Reader

It's still a little baffling that Google chose Reader as next for the chopping block. Although the company claimed that usage had declined, its clear that millions of people still used the product. Millions more probably would have if Google invested in redesigning its antiquated interface, and the vast knowledge the company would gain from anonymously monitoring what people are reading most could've provided a great service for other Google products, such as suggested reads within Google+ or even Google News.

On the other hand, this could be seen as Google doing a favour to the world's developers. The demise of a news-organising behemoth like Reader could (and seems to be doing) spark a surge of creativity in the world of article consumption services. Perhaps we'll look back on this week and thank Google for doing us all a favour.
