Knowing when to give in


Bloglines, I’m not going to mince my words here, or break it to you gently: it’s all over between us. I don’t know if you noticed, but I actually dumped you about a month ago.

I’d got fed up with your lack of attention, your seeming lack of knowledge that I existed…but the final straw was when you went away. For a day. Without telling me about it.
Eventually, you got your idiot friend the plumber (or whatever he claims to be) to make an excuse on your behalf, but it was too late. I didn’t trust you any more. How could I, when you left me in the lurch like that?
At least Google was there for me in my time of need. I’d given it a backup version of my feeds long ago…I never thought I’d have to turn to it in desperation.
Look what you drove me to, Bloglines.
Goodbye.

  1. Welcome to the dark side – Google claims another soul to its black flabby heart. You're in good company – I dumped bloglines a while back and moved across to Google Reader.

  2. @Geeklawyer You know I'd never marry you again. Fool me once… 🙂

    @Phil The only reason I held out so long against Google is, 'cos, well, it's Google? It's turning into as big a monopoly as Microsoft, and monopolies are never good!

  3. Whaaat? Monopoly is great! With the dog, and the hat, and the thing… 😉 The other thing about google is that it works, doesn't it? Can you knock that? BTW, I don't have shares in google…
