Google Now Feed Loses Card-Swiping and Nerds are Losing Their Minds | Droid Life. I haven't been called a Nerd in a long time. For a while, I wore the title like a badge of honor. I was different. I knew that. So, I decided to wear it proud and loud. But, then, I grew older, and I began to prefer Geek. It was less, well, nerdy. So, when Google Now decided that I couldn't swipe cards away anymore, I admit that I became a Nerd again. At least, that is what we are called when we object to one of the most bone headed Google moves in a while. Google has always been about user experience, and it is intentionally crippling the Google Now experience. Well, this is one Nerd that isn't going to take it anymore. Goodbye, Google Now. Hello Nova Launcher Prime. Jeez.
