I thought Roslyn by itself was amazing. This is just all around kickass.

I don't understand this new 3-column layout. I feel overwhelmed.

Not sure I like Stream format, either, as there's so much white space, now. :/

My requirements for a feed reader are fairly small... 
1. Check for new feed updates every few hours
2. Let me mark an article/link as read (or auto do that when I click it)
3. Have some way to incorporate that list of links into a website/browser/phone app, etc so it's accessible
 
I have a question for avid Google Reader users: what are the aspects of the way Reader works that made it so useful for you? I've heard a number of things floated in the past day -- e.g., the particular sources available, the way of managing read/unread state, various aspects of the UI -- but I'd like to understand better what the concrete things about Reader were which people found the most useful, because I'd like to integrate those ideas into future versions of many Google products, and try to capture that value.

(NB: If you're seeing this via a reshare, please remember to comment on the original post if you want me to see what you're saying!)

Warning: This is not a thread to simply complain about the shutdown, or to ask Google to keep Reader. That's not something that I can help you with, nor is it a decision that I had anything to do with, and this is not a good place to get anyone's attention about that. This thread is a place to talk about specific things which are useful about it so that we can think about good ways to capture that usefulness in the modern world.

Comments which disregard the previous paragraph will simply be deleted. Comments complaining about my deleting those comments will result in me blocking and/or mercilessly mocking you for failing to read instructions. Comments complaining about that will lead to some interesting replies in a combination of languages, probably starting with Yiddish and moving on from there. Comments interested in the Yiddish language should instead go on my post from last night. (http://goo.gl/xxn7h, but I should say that I'm not an expert or a fluent speaker of the language)

Google. Go ahead and just leave the inbox paging on the screen. Several clicks to see emails from yesterday is not right.

This is entertaining, especially if you're from Nebraska
 
Today I learned about the hot new sport in Nebraska called tanking. They also call it tankin, I think.

What is keeping them from simply truncating your password? This behavior is and always has been ridiculous.
 
I'm not even into the thing yet and Outlook.com's already a fail. 16-char max password? Seriously? What year is this again? Have chars 17 through TotalPasswordLength ever actually mattered? Yikes.

Ridiculous. It's like expecting your 4 digit PIN is gonna keep you safe.

Interesting to me for two reasons... it mentions Nebraska's cornfields (and boring highways) and the game rendering algorithms that resemble those cornfields

Future of home gaming? Use the room to enhance the experience
 This is a longer introduction to the concept of IllumiRoom by Microsoft. It´s an explanation of the possibilities gained by adding a projector and 3D room mapping. 

Will this be the way to keep consoles alive in a future dominated by mobile gaming?

SQL Server Management Studio 2012

Some things I'm noticing...

- IntelliSense seems to be case sensitive; This is strange because standard SQL is not case sensitive
- The IntelliSense popup sometimes comes up but doesn't have any words on it. I can still maneuver around and select items but I just can't read them.

I've always jumped back and forth between these options and have a tough time deciding which set of options I like more
