Google has a long history of introducing, then forgetting about, and finally officially killing off its products. Most recently, that included Google Spaces, a service that most of us never knew existed to begin with. Let's take a tour of some of our favourite services Google's killed off over the years.


Whether you're feeling nostalgic for the bygone era of Google Reader, or you legitimately need to read through your RSS feeds, Zombie Reader is a tool that lets you do just that. Zombie Reader works with the previously mentioned Reader is Dead, and gives you a chance to read the archives you downloaded before.


Feedly has been very popular with Lifehacker readers as a replacement for Google Reader, which has less than a month to live now. To get around that problem, Feedly is developing its own API for when Google kills Reader off for good. If you're a fan of alternate readers such as Reeder, Press or gReader, you'll now also be able to access the Feedly API.


Even if you already use Outlook, you might not know that you're also using a decent Google Reader replacement. Outlook can import and process a Google Reader feed export. It handles your unread items like a different kind of message.
