Still the weirdest anime show I've ever seen. But now it's in high-def!

I got +Kristi Leitholt an HTC One today. I think I am more excited than she is about it. Her old phone, my old HTC Nexus One, is so long in the tooth that the power button doesn't work anymore.

That's a nice upgrade. My sister is still using my Nexus One. She isn't big on tech though so it still does everything she needs. She will get my well cared for Galaxy Nexus once the next Nexus is hopefully released this year. Those N1s have been real troupers though.

So far I don't mind the multi-column mode in G+ but I can see why people wouldn't like it. The fact that they give the option to turn it off is great and it seems to be something they focused on with most of their changes (ability to switch back to a mode like it used to be).

I don't use Reader anymore, but this is exactly how I feel.
 
Can We Approach Google's Closure Of Reader Like Adults?

I'm not happy about Google's announcement. I'd like them to change their mind. It's a blow to my personal workflow (I use work very loosely here).

However, there are appropriate responses and then there is behaving like a 7 year old who doesn't get their way.

Appropriate

- Start/Sign a petition on Change.org in the hope we might sway Google.
- Express your disapointment on G+, Twitter, Facebook and your blogs. Ask Google to change its mind.
- Attempt to make an argument for the value that Reader may actually be bringing to Google.

Inappropriate
- Start/Sign a petition on Whitehouse.gov... this does not rate the attention of the president.
- Hurl insults at Google and insist they are evil.  Waaaa. A company isn't catering to my personal needs. How dare they!
- Claim you were betrayed, cheated or that Google are screwing their customers. You didn't pay anything for this service!
- Claim you know with certainty that this is bad business decision. You can't know that. You simply don't have access to any of the numbers you would need to draw that conclusion. You dont' know the user base. The trend of the user base. The costs related to Reader or anything else. Don't pretend you do.

These things make you look like a spoilt brat who thinks the world and all companies should revolve around them.

This has been on the cards for some time. Anyone who has been paying attention has been worried about it for a year or more.

It sucks. But as my father has always been very fond of telling me. Life isn't fair.

I took a random picture of our christmas tree and Google made it (auto) awesome by making it sparkle. Pretty nifty I'd say.
