google product closuresGoogle has announced yet another wave of Google product and services closures. The products hit this time include:

  • Aardvark
  • Fast Flip
  • Sidewiki
  • Google Desktop
  • Google Image Labeler
  • Google Maps API for Flash
  • Google Notebook
  • Google Pack
  • Google Subscribed Links
  • Google Web Security
Google ends by saying:

We’ve never been afraid to try big, bold things, and that won’t change. We’ll continue to take risks on interesting new technologies with a lot of potential. But by targeting our resources more effectively, we can focus on building world-changing products with a truly beautiful user experience.

It is sad to see some of these go but Google often tries wild things and closes down products, especially recently.
