When Google Reader was discontinued, it broke the hearts of journalists, bloggers and news hounds everywhere. Before that it was Google Talk. Before that; Google Labs. In fact, the search juggernaut has killed off a significant number of useful products in the name of profitability and progress. This infographic marks the passing of every significant product and service: from 2006 to present.
The guys over at Make A Website have assembled a list of all the products Google has pulled the plug on since Google Answers kicked the bucket in 2006. Often it could be argued that Google made the right decision in offing its creations — but some of these projects were also fiercely loved. The infographic also includes some Google products that are tipped to be "murdered" in the near future. Better start looking for alternatives now!
