Yesterday was the last day of Google Reader, which was my go-to RSS reader for most of the last decade. It was willing to fetch some new feeds last night after midnight, and I still have Reader open in one browser, so it's not quite dead, but will be the next time I close the browser or reboot or, very likely, click the Refresh button.
I was not happy when the social features were removed a couple of years back, because I discovered some good blogs by reading friends' shared items. I was even more unhappy when its demise was announced a few months ago.
And what do you know? The two replacements I've looked at have a serious and predictable lack: Feedly's Android app does not have a Mark as unread function, and neither does the Digg RSS reader in the browser. Feedly & Digg, what were you thinking? Your software engineers very likely use an RSS reader, and you cannot have missed this feature on Google Reader.
And while you're at it, give me a way to alphabetize my feed list.
