Every year, Google introduces interesting new products and services.
Inevitably people will use some of those products.
Google introduces them because they believe these products
will add value to their current offerings, and they are correct.
Inevitably some of these products will become beloved by many, many people. Then one day google announces that the service you know and love is going away.

Sometimes they replace it, sometimes they don't,
but without fail it is never quite the same.

This is the Google Graveyard: A home for news
and information about the products google has killed, or will kill
(unless google kills the products that I am using to create this site).

The Google Graveyard: Where google products go to die.

It's a story that's all too common. Google releases this cool new feature. You start using it and you kind of like it. The more you use it, the more you like it, and you think to yourself, man if they just refine this a little bit it will be so incredible. Then one day out of nowhere, it's gone. Google has killed your beloved friend. It wasn't perfect but you miss it.

Our goal it to help you in your process of mourning.

We want to ease your pain by:
  • Letting you know that you are not alone. We miss it too. 
  • Sharing a brief life sketch of the product (sometimes just talking about it helps). 
  • And when you're ready, we want to help you find a friend that can take the place of the one you lost. 

“We should keep the dead before our eyes, and honor them as though still living”
