Google Plus and Gmail, Sitting in a Tree | Daring Fireball
This has to be a mistake. Surely Google will change this from opt-out to opt-in.
According to data from the BuzzFeed Network, a set of tracked partner sites that collectively have over 300 million users, Google Reader is still a significant source of traffic for news — and a much larger one than Google+. The above chart, created by BuzzFeed’s data team, represents data collected from August 2012 to today.
Google Reader Still Drives Far More Traffic Than Google Plus | Daring Fireball
My own referrer logs look the same as Buzzfeed’s — lots from Google Reader, almost none from Google Plus. But I don’t know that that means Google made a mistake by shutting down Reader. I don’t think they want to drive traffic to other sites. Google Plus is like the late-’90s portal mania all over again — they want you to stay on their site, not go elsewhere.

Google Voice Pulled Amid iOS 5 Massive Fail | ParisLemon
I have hundreds of apps. The only one that I’ve seen that’s affected by the move to iOS 5 is Google Voice. It crashes every – single – time.
I know I bitch about this a lot, but I really can’t understand for the life of me why Google doesn’t take more pride in their work on iOS. Yes, I know the focus is on Android. But it’s still their own name they’re sullying. Always better to release nothing than to release shit.

Google Seppukus Jaiku, Buzz | ParisLemon
With Jaiku, what a shame. Just imagine if Google would have realized what they had all those years ago. Instead they let the product rot as they tried to squeeze the founders into other failed social projects.
Even sadder, I just assumed they had killed it off years ago.
As for Buzz. Finally. It’s been dead for ages, Google just refused to admit it until they were sure Google+ would get some traction. Massive fail.
