Petition to Save Google Reader Reaches A petition on Change.org to save Google Reader, the RSS platform that Google plans to cancel, has reached more than 100,000 signatures. When asked if the company planned to respond to the petition and what the company’s next step would be, a Google spokesperson told us: “We’ve given an overview of our reasoning and plans on our blog posts on the Official Google Blog and the Google Reader blog, and we’ll be communicating directly with our users as we make these changes. We don’t have anything more to share than what was in the posts.”
Dropbox announced today that it had acquired Mailbox, makers of a popular email app that launched last month.
The same team that delivered Orchestra To-Do last year has launched Mailbox today, a mobile email app that seeks to reinvent email for busy smartphone users. The app launched in a sign-up beta for iOS and Gmail clients only, but response has been overwhelming, according to the company.
