Bloglines: Shuts Down on October 1

Written on September 13, 2010 by B Waldorf

It is the final curtain call for the Bloglines.

We are very sorry for this news. Ask.com informed us that Bloglines is shutting down on October 1. This wouldn’t be an easy decision with the patient people behind it.

The web-based RSS reader and news aggregation Bloglines will be dissolved because of the dominance of social media sites like Twitter and Facebook.

RSS “pushes” website updates to readers around the globe so there’s no need for them to search and refresh the site. It was a game changer when it was born in 2005. Ask.com acquired Bloglines from its founder Mark Fletcher. The popularity soon fade away when social networking sites Twitter, StumbleUpon, Digg and Facebook came. These sites eventually replaced the former feeder.

Users are now following the favorite websites on Facebook and Twitter.“RSS aggregator usage has slowed significantly,” an Ask.com rep said in a blog post yesterday. “Bloglines isn’t the only service to feel the impact. The writing is on the wall.”

Bloglines will remain operational until October 1, you have atleast 3 weeks to export your feeds to another RSS app such as Google Reader. Google Reader added social features to the app for RSS.

Google Lets You Open Multiple Accounts in One Browser

Written on August 05, 2010 by Rudfer Tyron

Google lets you economize your effort by devising a multiple sign-in feature in Google Accounts. This feature makes browsing through Google products an almost seamless, more productive and more favorable experience.

You can now spare yourself some time and effort by not switching from one browser window to another, or signing in separately to multiple Google products. Thanks to Google! If the multiple sign-in feature is enabled, which is currently the default, signing in can now be done on the Google Accounts homepage. An overview of your current Google accounts will appear afterwards, allowing you to choose which product you will want to first work on.

This advanced feature currently works only for Gmail, Google Sites, Google Reader, Google Voice and Blogger, among others. Note that the account id you use in logging in will be your default account throughout the session. If the product you are subscribing to does not support multiple sign-in, you will automatically sign in with your default account in order to use the product. And once you sign out from one account, you sign out from all accounts at once.

It is one interesting feature that can keep getting better. If only Google will work on the three accounts per login limit right away, right? What do you think?
