Google’s been shutting down services in an effort to focus, and one clearly not long for this world is FeedBurner, the service I (and many, many publishers) have used to power my RSS feeds. I’m going to get ahead of the game and bring the main Finer Things in Tech feeds back home where they belong.

New RSS Feeds

If you still follow any main Finer Things feeds in Google Reader, they should update automatically; I don’t think you have to lift a finger. However, I’m not sure how other readers handle feed redirects, so to make sure everyone can play along or if you simply want to resubscribe just to be sure, here are the main feeds for:

Later today (Thursday, May 2, 2013) I’m going to make the switch for each of these feeds. Of course, you can subscribe to tag feeds for specific topics you’re interested in, and follow Finer Things on other services like Tumblr, Twitter, and Facebook. Check out links and instructions on the follow page.

I’m sorry I’ve had to mess with these feeds so much, but this should be the last time for the foreseeable future. I’m using WordPress’ native feed system now, and URI.LV to transparently count subscribers.

A Layout Tweak

I also recently updated each major Finer Things in Tech section with new header so recent posts make a better splash.

I want to make it easier for you to read just the sections you care about—Mac, iOS, PC, Web, and anything I add in the future—so look for more improvements like this in the future.
