OMG No!!!!!

We launched Google Reader in 2005 in an effort to make it easy for people to discover and keep tabs on their favorite websites. While the product has a loyal following, over the years usage has declined. So, on July 1, 2013, we will retire Google Reader. Users and developers interested in RSS alternatives can export their data, including their subscriptions, with Google Takeout over the course of the next four months.

I use Google Reader & have for years! Now I’m going to have to find another service to use. Granted I’ve used Reeder programs recently, but I’ve sync-d between computers & iOS devices with Google Reader. Now I need to find something else. Which is fun considering I use about 4 different devices and 3 different operating systems. So anyone have any suggestions on new RSS readers to try?
