πŸ’€ Killed by Google

Part guillotine, part graveyard for Google's doomed products

Killed by Google is an evergrowing list of products and startups that didn't survive the fight with the giant. From Google Reader to Sparrow to Project Ara. You can find your old friends here, or projects that were never born ⚰️ πŸ’€ 😒

Well, at least they've killed Google+ for good.

Oh, and it is ad free and open source! βœ…

Hello Product Hunt! Thank you @killthekitten for hunting Killed by Google. Did you know Google created a product scarily similar to Uber but killed it? I was understandably saddened when it was announced that Inbox by Google was sentenced to the guillotine, and I wanted to create an open source, community-driven statement about the churn of products at large companies like Google that are quickly adopted by a community of users and become suddenly unavailable. Why "killed"? It's meant to be tongue-in-cheek and the opposite of @madebygoogle. I understand product lifecycles mean that some products are lost due to iteration or absorption of their features into a wider brand. That doesn't mean we can't mourn the brands, products, services, and devices we used to love. πŸ˜… My goal is to have this be a place that tracks the end of life status when they are announced by Google, and also be a cemetery you can scroll through when you're feeling nostalgic. I also wanted to raise awareness for the Wikimedia Foundation and the Internet Archive, two organizations doing amazing work in preserving software and knowledge for generations to come.
