    This caused the fabulous concept of feeds user can control/choose to be, very sadly, almost dead.

    Rdio was the best. I was lost when they shut down. Still haven't found a replacement. Play Music is pretty good, but Rdio was fantastic.
    I still miss it a lot. It had a wonderful UI.

    This is not something I had been personally sad about but I remember so many people being sad about Topsy being shut down. I think the reason why it happened was that they were acquired by Apple, but I don't know what happened to them after that.

    The best collaborative bookmarking tool! You could make collections, with searchable tags, that were either public or private. It was great for curating content from around the web that your whole team could work with. RIP Kifi. RIP Google Spaces.

    This was the first and best organiser of my head and things. 4 years later I have still not found a product that organises things as nicely it did.
