Google's killing off its prepaid card service for Google Wallet, which is especially bad news for Australian users of the service, as it makes it effectively unusable on these shores.
It's worth noting that the service never actually officially launched in Australia; getting it working on an Android phone involved a certain amount of hacking. Google's announced that anyone with existing prepaid card value will have their money refunded. Still, as Luke over at Gizmodo notes, it's a serious blow to the service locally, and makes it more or less inevitable that it'll never actually launch here.
