Google is worthless

The death of Google Listen reminds me why I still don’t miss the platform, after losing my smartphone… 

We launched Google Listen through Google Labs in August 2009, to give people a way to discover and listen to podcasts. However, with Google Play, people now have access to a wider variety of podcast apps, so we’ve discontinued Listen. People who have already installed the app can still use it, but after November 1, podcast search won’t function. You can access your podcast subscriptions in Google Reader in the Listen Subscriptions” folder and download them from the Import/Export tab.
