    Google Shuts Down 10 of its Services at Once
    Search giant Google announced on its official blog that it is conducting an ‘autumn spring clean’. In other words, it shut down 10 of its services at once. In a bid to pay closer attention to its ‘best performers’, like Google Search, Google Mail, and Google Docs, it has shut down 10 services which were really not in use and people couldn’t care less about them. A few amongst the services to be shut down are Aardvark, a ‘social questioning’ service, FastFlip, a news delivery service, and SideWiki, which allowed people to work along with browsing the web.

    Alan Eustace, Senior Vice President, said on the company’s official blog, “Technology improves, people’s needs change, some bets pay off and others don’t. Today we’re having an autumn spring-clean at Google. Over the next few months we’ll be shutting down a number of products and merging others into existing products as features. This will make things much simpler for our users.”

    Many of these products had started life as a start-up that was later bought by Google. Another technology that has been abandoned is downloadable ones, such as Google Desktop. This might have been done in a bid to concentrate more on online services. Many of the abandoned services will be included in Google’s latest services, like Google Plus.
    A few days earlier, Google’s CEO Larry Page had said in a blog post that the Company wished to focus more on products and services that were performing well.
    “It is easy to focus on things we do that are speculative (e.g., driverless cars) but we spend the vast majority of our resources on the core products. We may have a few small speculative projects happening at any given time, but we’re not betting the farm on this stuff. All of us at Google want to create services that people across the world use twice a day … just like a toothbrush!”
