The Google Graveyard


It's hard to lose a loved one, especially if that loved one is a Google service. Go through the gates of the Google Graveyard, a virtual space for grieving. Buried in these hallowed grounds are some of Google's ill-fated services. Some, like Google Reader, lived long, prosperous lives, full of admiration and glory.

Most, like Google Wave and Google Buzz, struggled to carve out a place in this harsh, unforgiving world where technologies continuously clash and innovation reigns king. But whether these services transformed our productivity or only polluted our inboxes, they all touched our world in some way. You can click on a grave to leave a flower.
