Google Reader probably has a lot in mind and it is not difficult to guess what it exactly is, thanks to a few actions that the company has taken recently. Well, for all those who still believe that the main driving force behind Google is to make people’s lives easier on the internet, think again. Clearly, Google has more in mind than to just help people with their everyday lives.

Google is no longer concerned with the service it provides, it seems. Rather, it looks as if the company is now gearing up to maximize its profits and cut down on costs. Time to save up for the company, I suppose.
