Well it looks like G wave is ending…too bad! anyway just read an article here:

http://www.neowin.net/news/google-is-waving-goodbye-to-google-wave

 

Google was recently seeking a new use for Google Wave, trying to get the healthcare industry
to use its services, however, that now seems to not be the case, as the
company has announced it will discontinuing its services.

@GWave: Buh By! Cry

@Ashraf: Agreed. As they say: “Good riddance to bad rubbish!” Wink

It’s pretty funny how we were all fighting to get accounts earlier this year.

Seems like Google does this a lot.  They must just throw money at everything and then back off like a bad habit.

I was a tester but it was madness so I didn't even bother anymore.  Too bad though the videos they showed made it look promising.  Looks like the only thing they accomplished online this year is forcing M$ into the clouds.  lol

 

Vidimo Se!

Then you don't follow the unofficial Google blog.

  • Drag and drop to download and upload attatchments.
  • Sign into multiple accounts
  • Embeddable HTML5/Flash dual-player so no matter what browser you're on the video will play.
  • Totally cool Google Images redesign.
  • Free fonts that actually look good.
  • A webapp for making Android apps.
  • Adding a functional spell check to the Google search box (rather than the results).
  • YouTube supporting 4k-pixel video
  • Rich-text email signatures

And that's just since June!

Earlier this year they released Android 2.2, which is much faster than 2.1 and supports-get this!-a fully-functional Flash player (no “Flash Lite”!)

They also released an alternative to the video codec h264, called WebM, this year.

And don't forget Google TV!

So yeah, what was that about Google not accomplishing anything this year? Wink

Oh, the site that was :(

@Locutus – You're a google fanboy aren't ya!?

 

Anyways, I've always thought Google Wave was a little confusing for me. Not to mention all those books published to teach you Wave are pretty pointless now…

Well at least the publishing model worked out (for the Lifehacker one-the author published an article yesterday about how the co-author was doing another book with the same model). Yell

 

And yes I'm a Google Fanboy.
