If Google Says So It Must Be Right

On explaining why they don't recognize feeds in Google Chrome:
"Given that most people are not familiar with and don't consume RSS feeds, we thought that RSS support would be a better fit as an extension, at least to begin with."
I guess it's just another example of how nerds don't talk to humans.  Nerds come up with these great ideas, the usefulness of which is self-evident, at least to the inventor.  They forget someone has to explain to the rest of us the benefits and get us over the learning curve, all of which can be a drag.  I'm saying "us", but at least with regards to RSS feeds, I'm an explainer and an adopter, not an "us".
