Google has been on a killer streak lately. In the sense that it's killing products left and right. Of course, all big companies close down the things they don't need anymore. But the executions have been increasing at Google for the past year or so.
Luckily, someone figured this would be something great for Pinterest and that's how the Google Graveyard was born
. As you can imagine, it's filled with Google products that are no longer with us. At face value, it's funny collection but little else.
But the interesting part here is subtext, each of these products is nailed to the wall as examples of Google's failures. Which is ironic, though not in the intended sense, since it's coming
from the never quiet Microsoft head of communications Frank X. Shaw.
Coincidentally, Microsoft just wrote off $6.2 billion, with a "b," after the pricey acquisition of the aQuantive ad company failed to pay off. But that's just one example, there are tens
of them, literally.
