CNET News Video: Tech Minute: Google Reader substitutions

1:00 /

On July 1, Google Reader, the popular web service, is scheduled to shut down. Over the years, it's become a handy tool for many people who like to manage their Internet news content in one place. In this Tech Minute, CNET's Kara Tsuboi reports on several desktop alternatives to the soon-defunct Google Reader.

If you are someone who follows lots of news publications and blogs, you need a Reader to aggregate all that material into one place. Here are three great alternatives to Google Reader. For Apple users, give reader a world. Besides its standard RSS management capabilities, users might enjoy its robust sharing features that let you post directly to Facebook and Twitter. FeedReader for Windows users comes highly recommended. It's certainly a good replacement for Google Reader, largely for its solid internal search capabilities. And whether you use a Mac or a Windows computer, RSSOwl boasts a lot of user-friendly services, like the ability to group similar feeds together, search by keyword, and read in a newspaper style. Whichever service you choose, one heavy tip is to set up your new account to sync with Google Reader. That will save you a whole lot of time when Google service finally expires. In San Francisco, I'm Kara Tsuboi, CNET.com for CBS News.
