I Still Hate Google Reader

Okay so now Google Buzz is going on. Okay fine. Buzz seems kinda harmless. I’m okay with poking over occasionally to see, well, the buzz! This is fine.

But now I have other peoples crap appearing on my Google Reader again. And how do I stop this from happening? By unfollowing people, which ALSO UNFOLLOWS THEM ON BUZZ.

Google. Google, seriously lets get real here. I NEVER, EVER, EVER WANT TO SEE OTHER PEOPLES CRAP ON MY GOOGLE READER. MY RSS FEEDS ARE CAREFULLY CHOSEN BY ME. I DON’T WANT TO SEE CAMERA REVIEWS, OR FUNNY FACE BOOK POSTS OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. IF I CARE ABOUT WHAT MY FRIENDS ARE POSTING ABOUT I WILL LOOK AT GOOGLE BUZZ. FOR THE LOVE OF FUCK STOP CRAMMING SHIT I DON’T CARE ABOUT ONTO GOOGLE READER. FOREVER.

Thanks.

  1. Google’s desire to integrate everything into everything has become very annoying for me as well…

    I wish they’d just focus on streamlining and perfecting some of their existing products before they go mashing them together.

  2. I agree. The integration with buzz is pretty bad anyways, since you see events on buzz on your reader, email, and on buzz. Thats…. hardly good design.

  3. Buzz is terrible in other ways… Google touted it as a realtime aggregater yet it can take 12 to 24 hours for buzz to aggregate items from the various platforms it pulls from (including its own reader?!)

    I disabled it shortly after enabling it.
