The other day Google announced they are scrapping a number of their products including:

Aardvark – Aard-what?
Desktop – quite interesting as they used to really push this
Fast Flip – Pointless addition to Google Reader, total flop.
Google Maps API for Flash
Google Pack
Google Web Security
Image Labeler
Notebook – I really liked this, I used it to write a book. Fortunately if you do use this your notes will be imported into Google Docs.
Sidewiki – Again this was a bit of a flop.

Some of these products were quite popular at one time, for example I remember downloading the “Google Pack” a while back, but nowadays things are changing and Google are restructuring themselves to give Microsoft a good kick in the teeth with Chrome OS and Google Apps.

Personally I think its great that they scrap the unpopular products and services – many companies refuse to do that and continue regardless.
