I've been a huge fan of Google Reader for years. I usually start every morning with my coffee and Google Reader...
Note: i am still not decided between Tiny RSS and Newsblur, both are running on my server…
We launched Google Reader in 2005 in an effort to make it easy for people to discover and keep tabs on their favorite websites. While the product has a loyal following, over the years usage has declined. So, on July 1, 2013, we will retire Google Reader. Users and developers interested in RSS alternatives can export their data, including their subscriptions, with Google Takeout over the course of the next four months. see http://googleblog.blogspot.nl/2013/03/a-second-spring-of-cleaning.html
As usual Google do a great job, and let you download your data very easily with Google Takeout. You can get there a copy of ALL of your Reader data:
Follow this link to download only your Reader data from Takeout. Your subscriptions are then available in a xml file that can be imported in most RSS aggregators. (see below)
Both Google+ and Facebook are pushing now to be your one and only news aggregating site. You can still sign the online petition at https://www.change.org/petitions/google-keep-google-reader-running (for what it is worth)
2 weeks ago, a post on Google's official blog announced a project that allows users to step inside the private world of its data centers. For the first time, the company's impressive efficiency records and green ethos have been given a face in the form of the stunning photographs by Connie Zhou and the Street View-able hallways of the Lenoir facility in North Carolina...
Google+ is a new social media platform currently in limited Field Trial only. You can only join Google Plus after invitation from a Google Plus user.

I will check your email in Google, so don’t cheat or you’ll get nothing in return.This email will expire in 24hours. I may renew this offering in the next few days.
Final words: Do not give money to free riders! so
Nothing is more disturbing than to be redirected to you local Google domain (.ch, .fr, .de or any other) when you want to do a search using English keywords. Did you notice by the way that the index returned is different? you do not get the same number of results or any accurate results at all if you use the same query on your local Google domains…
Here is a small tip to force Google Chrome to redirect all your direct search (when you type in the location bar and click enter) always to Google.com or any other local domains of Google instead of the one that is revealed by your IP country.
The latest version of a Chrome browser show its muscle in version 12 (just restart your chrome browser to get this new version), major new features
Watch Shaun and his friends' antics in clips from "An Ill Wind", "Snowed In", "The Big Chase", and "Twos Company" through an interactive experiment created with hardware-accelerated HTML5 video, 3D CSS Transforms, and WebM. Use the controls to expand and shrink the video, rotate the scene, bring up a rotating carousel of videos, turn on puddle reflection, and navigate between videos in a snap.
HTML5 and CSS make these advanced functionalities (and more!) a part of the modern web standard, and allow developers and artists to create immersive, imaginative experiences for everyone to enjoy.
Google is really pushing the web and they show it nicely.
I am also a fan of Wallace & Gromit as well
