Google changes its inbox zero message from one about Google Reader to one about Google+.

You may have never seen Google's special message if your inbox is at zero, because maybe you've never had the glorious experience of having no email. However, if you have, you've probably seen Google's little message in Gmail which reads, "No new mail! There's always Google Reader if you're looking for something to read." Pretty straightforward way to advertise one of the company's other services, right? Well, Google is seemingly putting everything into it's newer offering Google+, and that message has now changed to what you see above. Poor Reader.
