Hi. Was this meant to be an image of a coconut in an egg-cup with the caption "Hotlinking - It's what's for dinner"?
(I came here via Google Reader.)
Google Reader is fucked.
Thank you. I get the feeling you get asked this question a lot. Sorry about that.
My uh, understanding is that Google Reader is essentially unmaintained. At some point the whining will reach the wrong person in the company and it will be replaced with a message telling people to... I don't know, install Chrome or something. Until then it works as much as it works, and when it breaks you get to keep both halves.
But on the other hand Firefox's RSS handling got dramatically worse as they "streamlined" it so I guess I should be thankful these days when nobody is being paid to make things worse.
Yeah, I use NetNewsWire on desktop and Reeder on iPhone/iPad, which both use Google Reader as cloud storage of the "unread" flags. At least it still works for that.
