    Google Keep: If Google launches a note-taking service, would you trust it to stick around? - Liliputing (click for full article)

    "Google may be preparing to launch a new online note-taking service called Google Keep. Android Police noticed that it went live briefly yesterday, but the Google Keep website is no longer active.

    Overall it looks like a decent tool for jotting notes and saving and organizing them online so you can access them from any web browser or mobile device. But despite the permanent-sounding name "Google Keep," I have to wonder whether it's a good idea to start relying on a new Google product of this type."

    Five Products that Should Fear Google's Next Killing Spree

    by Ryan Tate March 18, 2013


    "Google CEO Larry Page is in a pruning mood. In a "spring cleaning" last week, Google killed five products, most prominently Google Reader, and began phasing out two APIs.


    Page's last mass killing of products was in September, when the company killed off eight products and began phasing out two developer interfaces. Since assuming CEO duties in January, Page has worked diligently to bring more focus to Google.


    But the company retains an almost comically broad set of initiatives, ranging from self-driving cars to high-tech glasses to (multiple) social networks to mobile handsets and (multiple) operating systems - and everything in between. If Google sees a beloved, impactful, but less-than-blockbuster product like Reader as something to prune then there's plenty more brush to clear.


    Here are five obvious candidates. I'd hate to see some of these products go, but they seem at risk given Google's current priorities:


    Google TV: Google's television platform, designed to bring YouTube, Google Play, and web surfing to your living room, was originally forecast to produce $3 billion in annual revenue. Google has not disclosed how far short of expectations Google TV has fallen, but it's clearly not a success. Reviews were generally poor. After horrific sales of its Google TV gear, then acting CEO of Logitech, Guerrino De Luca, told analysts that developing a set-top box for Google TV was "a mistake of...a gigantic nature."
