  • RamyFounder @ Letterfuel
    Pros: 

    Great design, helps people do product research

    Cons: 

    Great design and easy to navigate. This site will be useful for people building new products as it will help them learn from similar products that managed to gain traction, but ultimately die.

  • Rafe NeedlemanTech Editor, Writer, Critic, Blowhard
    Pros: 

    Nostalgic AND educational.

    Cons: 

    Not a con really, but I'd like to see this MVP evolve. Great start!

    This is fun and it could be super-useful. I'd love to do some analysis of this data set, correlating against Crunchbase data (sector, funding, etc) to see what could be learned and applied to future startups.

  • Cris Firmoa curious and info addict guy :)
    Pros: 

    No pros

    Cons: 

    Wrong information and censorship

    The site allow discussions using Disqus and I corrected the Orkut entry which was 100% wrong and instead of the site correct the entry, they removed my comment from it....

    Making a mistake is a ok

    Not correcting and censoring who corrects is more than pathetic

  • Kamlesh RavlaniFounder, Agile For Growth
    Pros: 

    Definitely worth learning from the good products that were killed

    Cons: 

    Can't think any at the moment.

    Every Product Manager and Product Owner must remind themselves that their product must meet customer needs or will become obsolete. It's not necessarily about more features. It's about if the customers can use them with ease.

    Kamlesh Ravlani has used this product for one day.
  • Radoslav StankovTech @ Product Hunt
    Pros: 

    Shows good information about products.

    Cons: 

    Doesn't include screenshots of the products. Doesn't have many filtering/search options

    Fun to look for nostalgia purposes.

  • AngieFounder of YourApparel
    Pros: 

    Also adds why a product ended

    Cons: 

    Can't think of any improvements at the moment

    Great for gathering ideas for new products and services.

  • Stellar Data RecoveryWe Recover Data
    Pros: 

    An innovative concept

    Cons: 

    None

    At-least a place for products that are no longer in use.

  • Red Dave MarshallFreelance operations guy
    Pros: 

    Nostalgia & Despair all rapped in to one site.

    Cons: 

    It's all bad. They're gone.

    It would be great include a summary of why each gravestone is there. Afterall those who came after the mothballs will just find digital dust.
