Google Reader

Bad news- Google Reader is closing down. The Android client together with the Web App were excellent (in my opinion).

For me, Google Reader was the main reason I have been using Google+. At least it will make my decision about whether to focus on Facebook versus Google+, easier.

It is similar to the time when Microsoft announced when they were stopping MS Money. It left me with no reason not to jump from Windows onto Mac OS X.

My question: What is stopping Google dropping other services I rely on which they may not consider commercially important (like Google Calendar or Picasa)?
