Google Reader Is Dead: What Do You Think About It? [MakeUseOf Poll]

Ads by Google

Last week we asked you what you think of the new SimCity game and its problematic launch. Despite the generally good reviews the game has received prior to launch, the buggy launch and forced online play seems to lower the game’s appeal, at least for MakeUseOf readers.

Out of 259 votes in total, the votes were divided as follows: 3.5% played the game but don’t think it’s anything special, another 3.5% bought the game but couldn’t manage to play properly, 11% played the game and think it’s awesome, 19% want to buy it but haven’t don’t so yet, 34% love SimCity but will not buy the game at its current price/conditions, and 29% of the readers who voted are not interested in the game at all.

Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.

This week’s poll question is the obvious one considering the week’s biggest news: the end of Google Reader. Despite Google’s claim that Reader’s usage was declining, the uproar that followed the announcement seems to point otherwise. Are you a Google Reader user, or do you use a different RSS reader that doesn’t rely on Google’s product? Do you understand Google’s decision, or do you think it’s a huge mistake? How do you think this decision will affect RSS services? Tell us what you think of Google’s most controversial decision in quite a while.

Don’t forget to tell us in the comments why shutting down Google Reader is good or bad, and of course, share some good alternatives, if you have any!
