Google kills Google Video and five other projects

Posted on Thursday, January 15 2009 @ 19:59:31 CET by

Besides job cuts Google also closed some of its less popular or redundant projects today, including its Google Video service. This doesn't really come as a surprise as Google Video gets only a fraction of the hits YouTube receives. Users can still access Google Video, but it's no longer possible to upload new videos.

Other services that received the axe:
  • Google Catalog Search: This project made it in to Google Book Search
  • Google Notebook: No further development but it will remain available for the few people who use it.
  • Dodgeball: Has largely been supplanted by Twitter
  • Google Mashup Editor: Terminated in favor of the more powerful App Engine
  • Jaiku: Ported to Google App Engine as opensource, may live on with support from volunteers.
  • Additionally, it's rumored that Grand Central and Knol may be the next projects that will receive the boot.
