In case you had ideas of building out this site, here's some unvalidated/unprioritized ideas to drive more adoption/engagement and retention: 1. Visualize the tombstones on a timeline and sort by product category 2. List out reigning competitor (internal or external) that superseded the target market 3. Provide additional links to artifacts, news articles and existing online references by Google would drive more depth to each gravestone 4. Develop tool to scan a website for existing Google product usage and risk for cancellation -- can leverage Builtwith/Ghostery tools 5. Develop tool to help scan each visitor's Google account for existing Google product usage 6. Developing a platform to petition (if not also scan your existing Google product usage) for upcoming announced planned product cancellations. I blame the post-Thanksgiving turkey lunch for vegging out on ProductHunt! 😉
@laurensophia these are some carefully crafted insights for the product owner!!
This website gives me nightmares
Pixate too.
@ryanamurphy It was a very good tool, I still sometimes use it (thanks to the sites from which you can download the apk to the android)
