Google Reader's Makeover

Over the past few months, Google has been incredibly active. The company has had comical auction bids, several rounds of product closures, as well as a visual redesign of current products and launches of new products. This has all been since co-founder Larry Page's return to the company in an attempt to make Google profitable and relevant again.

The latest Google product to fall victim to the redesigned interface is Google Reader. This one won't just be a refresh to make it look like the rest of Google - there will be a lot of features removed, and some new ones added. On the list of things going is: friends, Reader sharing and favoriting (starring). You also will not be able to share subscriptions with friends (partially because friends are going away). All of these features will be replaced by integrations of the Google + brands; the +1 button and Google+ social networking.

How does Google plan to handle the inevitable objections? Hit the break ot find out.
