Most of you know that Google Play Newstand has replaced Currents. You can uninstall updates to Currents, and the first time you click its icon after installing the successor, there's a "b'bye" message and it's gone. No more Currents.
What they didn't tell us is ... no more Currents[-like] Daydream. I rather liked that Daydream, showing news from all my selected news sources. It made the Nexus 7 an interesting desktop "news ticker" while I worked.
Same recipe as they used with Hangouts. They offer Hangouts to handle all messaging, including SMS/MMS, wow, yay hurray, but forget to mention "Oops, we didn't give you any home screen/lock screen widgets to preview your SMS messages with, sorry." Pffft.

Re: R.I.P. Currents
feedly doesn't meet my needs like currents did because currents auto updated the feeds correctly and reliably. newstand updates a couple feeds and gives up on the rest. I recently booted up my old samsung nexus phone and currents still worked. brought back fond memories.
