Google Graveyard

Google announced recently that its RSS aggregator Google Reader will be retired later this year. It's just the latest in a long line of Google products offered and then pulled, some living longer than others. They didn't all die of unpopularity. Some were replaced, like Google Video when the company acquired YouTube, some were combined into other existing products, and some were popular but not profitable.  Some of the products in the graveyard you've never even heard of because they were doomed from birth. There are 39 graves in the "cemetery" at Slate, and you're invited to leave a virtual flower for the ones you actually miss. Link -via the Presurfer

I loved iGoogle! But Reader is what I'll miss the most. I'm trying to adapt to Feedly but I'm one of those people who dramatically flattens out the bottom of the learning curve.......................... :(
