I started this post a while ago but yesterday the news came that Google is killing Google Reader in July. If you read this blog via Google Reader, there are a number of articles about the alternatives … here are a couple of them:
‘Hey Google, we still love Reader’ from Mashable and
Google Reader is getting shut down; here are the best alternatives, from Lifehacker.
If you would prefer to read it via email, you can sign up on the sidebar and Mailchimp will send you one whenever I publish a new post >>>>>
And of course within a few hours of the news breaking, someone had come up with a ‘Hitler hears the news about Google Reader’ on Youtube!
Recently instead of bookmarking all my favourite sites I’ve been using Evernote to keep them synched across my laptop, tablet and phone. Evernote is like an online pile of notebooks with a really powerful search facility … It has a great series on its blog called Tips and Stories where people describe how they use Evernote for their particular line of business, hobby or whatever so rather than go on about it here I’ll just direct you there.
