Google Wave A Closeout
REALITY beats hype every time and Google has abandoned its Wave product after less than 12 months. The reason - not enough people were using it despite a tsunami of geek-generated publicity on launch. Wave was supposed to be a breakthrough combining email and instant messaging to facilitate sharing of rich content like documents, maps, images and video.
Urs Hölzle, a senior vice-president of operations at Google blogged: "Wave has not seen the user adoption we would have liked. We don't plan to continue developing Wave as a standalone product, but we will maintain the site at least through the end of the year."
Developer Lars Rasmussen commented: "Primarily it was new and people didn't quite know what to do with it." August 5, 2010.
