Google Reader and Mac/iOS RSS readers that sync →
Brent weighs in on the precarious ecosystem that the world of RSS readers built on Google Reader currently live in now that Google has started messing with the functionality provided by Reader. There’s no single set of apps that I use as much as my rss readers, NetNewsWire on my Mac, and Reeder on my iOS devices. This change worries me greatly, mainly because I am unaware of any other...

I have a hard time justifying the use case for M43, but then I shoot with a full frame camera, a case that Mike deals with in the article.
