Golden opportunity for Microsoft with Google Reader shuttering

I really hope Microsoft is smart enough to do this. How hard could it be for a company as big as Microsoft to crank out a killer RSS reader? Just make a web-based version first through and then build out the apps later.

It actually makes sense because Microsoft is pushing a social network like Google is, and just the PR boost alone would make this move worth it.

I hope you are on your toes Microsoft because Google just gave you a golden opportunity.
