Google Reader Replacements R Us

Google announced a couple months ago it was discontinuing, or “retiring,” Google Reader on July 1.

Google’s decision seems to have created an opportunity for others.

Recent reports have Digg, AOL, and Facebook working on Reader replacements. And there are others announcing or beefing up offerings.

Meanwhile, Nick Bradbury, who has joined Automatic (makers of WordPress), has released the final verson of the venerable  FeedDemon and made it free.

Have you found something to replace Google Reader yet? Or, maybe the question is, do you need a replaceemnt for Reader?
