Product Hunt Daily Digest
August 23rd, 2017

What happened to Vine, Sunrise, and Mailbox? RIP. 💐⚰
Share Product Eulogy 🌹
Startups come and go. Very few last for decades. Some shut down when the founders call it quits. Others get acquired and subsequently killed by their adoptive parents. Few pivot into something great.

Product Graveyard commemorates the most memorable products that have gone away. The site is well-designed and informative, recognizing each startup’s cause of death, lifespan, notable achievements, and last known residence.

For example, Sunrise’s honorable grave reads:
👶  Born February 2013 and it died in August 2016
☠  Got killed by its adoptive parent who merge it into Outlook
🔮  Known for great UI, simple to use, and 3rd party services
🏠  Last know residence: OS X, Windows, iOS, Android, and Web


Product Graveyard has hundreds of products you can honor and learn from. If any are missing, submit a short 'autopsy' for the team to add, and share a eulogy (a fun story) in the PH comments and company page.
HIGHLIGHT
