Google Services CleanUp

Google announced "Fall spring-clean". Google will clean, over the next few months, services and products that didn't quite take-off. Google's reason for this is: "This will make things much simpler for our users, improving the overall Google experience. It will also mean we can devote more resources to high impact products—the ones that improve the lives of billions of people."

Some of the products will have a negative impact to some developers. For example, the discontinued development of the Google Maps API for Flash.

This is the list of doomed products and services:
  • Aardvark 
  • Google Desktop 
  • Fast Flip 
  • Google Maps API for Flash 
  • Google Pack 
  • Google Web Security 
  • Image Labeler 
  • Notebook 
  • Sidewiki 
  • Subscribed Links
