Google finally realises that half of their products are completely useless
Google are streamlining a whole bunch of their services as they seemingly have realised that no-one wants or uses them.
The most well-known thing being culled is the useless and annoying Google Buzz. Obviously, the company don't need it as they've replaced it with Google+.
Other Google products will be closed on 15 January, 2012, including: Code Search and the Code Search API, Jaiku and Igoogle. Chances are, you've never even heard of these things, so your life can carry on as normal.
If you're mental enough to still use Google Buzz, you'll still be able to view post from a Google Profile, but the Buzz tab on Google+ will disappear.
"We aspire to build great products that really change people's lives, products they use two or three times a day," said Bradley Horowitz, VP of Product at Google.
"To succeed you need real focus and thought - thought about what you work on and, just as important, what you don't work on. It's why we recently decided to shut down some products, and turn others into features of existing products. We learned a lot from products like Buzz, and are putting that learning to work every day in our vision for products like Google+."
