(MoneyWatch) Google (GOOG), which is fairly infamous for summarily shutting down unprofitable services and products, has dropped the axe on yet another one: Google Reader is being shuttered. Unlike some of Google’s other discontinued products, though, the RSS feed-reading tool seems to enjoy significant popularity. Many professionals use it to aggregate industry news and analysis and have relied on it daily for years. The silver lining: First, Google Reader isn’t going anywhere for a few months. The official shutdown date is July 1, so you have that long to come up with a Plan B.
