Digg -- yes, that Digg -- has a replacement in the works for Google Reader, and it looks like it'll arrive just ahead of the final days of Google's RSS aggregation service. The service, which uses the same API as Reader, is planning a public beta starting on June 26th; a "friends and family" beta will open this Wednesday, the 19th, with limited access.Digg's RSS Reader Beta Opens June 26 [engadget.com]
During beta, the Digg RSS reader is free.
"We mentioned in a prior post that Digg Reader will ultimately be a 'freemium' product,"

I fear Digg and other Google Reader replacements are cutting it a bit too close to the wire. If they haven't released a product by now it will be tougher to attract Reader customers once the service has already shut down.
