On July 1st Google is retiring Google Reader. Google Reader is an RSS reader that was launched on October 7th, 2005. I have been a long time user and enjoyed the simple interface for keeping up on news, tech, and various blogs.
So now what?
I used Google Takeout to export my Google Reader info and have moved everything over to Feedly after a brief trial of The Old Reader. I have been using Feedly for a couple months now and I like it. The interface is different but you can configure it to look like Google Reader. I ended up going with the “magazine view” for most categories though. Feedly has an Android app which works really well once you get the hang of the gestures. I also setup a new recipe on IFTTT so that my Feedly saved items are saved to Evernote.
For a thorough review of the Google Reader alternatives check out this article on GigaOm.
An updated Dell EqualLogic Compatibility Matrix was just posted in the last couple of days for all you storage admins. This document shows the array configurations that were tested in Dell’s lab and that work under normal conditions.
If you are using VMware vSphere 5.0, the software iSCSI initiator out of the box is compatible with array software versions 5.1.x, 5.2.x, and 6.0.x.
