Google is also giving the axe to these stupid-ass projects:
- Google Knol
- Google Search Timeline
- Google Gear
- Google Friend Connect
- Google Bookmarks Lists
- Google Wave
Google could save a ton on their electricity bill if they turfed 75% of
their software programmers and unplugged their cubical computers.
Ah ha. Google Wave is dead. I told you it was going to be a failure.
Google quits plans to make cheap renewable energy
Tue Nov 22, 2011 7:30pm EST
SAN FRANCISCO, Nov 22 (Reuters) - Google Inc has abandoned an ambitious
project to make renewable energy cheaper than coal, the latest target of
Chief Executive Larry Page's moves to focus the Internet giant on fewer
Google said on Tuesday that it was pulling the plug on seven projects,
including Renewable Energy Cheaper than Coal as well as a Wikipedia-like
online encyclopedia service known as Knol.
The plans, which Google announced on its corporate blog, represent the
third so-called "spring cleaning" announcement that Google has made
since Google co-founder Page took the reins in April.
The changes come as Google is facing stiff competition in mobile
computing and social networking from Apple Inc and Facebook, and as some
investors have groused about rising spending at the world's No.1
Internet search company.
"To recap, we're in the process of shutting down a number of products
which haven't had the impact we'd hoped for, integrating others as
features into our broader product efforts, and ending several which have
shown us a different path forward," wrote Google Senior Vice President
of Operations Urs Holzle in the blog post.
Google said that it believed other institutions were better positioned
to take its renewable energy efforts "to the next level."
Google began making investments and doing research into technology to
drive down the price of renewable energy in 2007, with a particular
focus on solar power technology.
In 2009, the company's so-called Green Energy Czar, Bill Weihl, told
Reuters that he expected to demonstrate within a few years working
technology that could produce renewable energy at a cheaper price than
"It is even odds, more or less," Weihl said at the time. "In three
years, we could have multiple megawatts of plants out there."
A Google spokesman said that Weihl had left Google earlier this month.
Google noted in its blog post that it would continue efforts to generate
"cleaner, more efficient energy," including procuring renewable energy
for its data centers.
Among the other projects included in Tuesday's "spring cleaning" were
Google Knol, Google Search Timeline, Google Gear, Google Friend Connect,
Google Bookmarks Lists and Google Wave, an ill-fated social networking
and communication service that Google had previously said it would cease
Google said that in December its email and calendar applications will no
longer work with Gears technology, which allows Google's software to
work when not connected to the Internet. Google said it is working to
create offline capabilities into HTML5 technology instead.
Google Friend Connect, which allows website publishers to add social
features to their sites, will be retired in March for all non-Blogger
websites, Google said. It suggested that websites use its Google+ social
Earlier this year, Google said it would "wind down" Google Labs, a
website that offered public access to experimental Google products, as
well as terminating products that let consumers monitor their home
energy consumption and keep track of their personal health records.
Shares of Google, which finished Tuesday's regular trading session down
94 cents, were up 86 cents at $80.86 in after hours trading.
As an gmail and Chrome user I was really pissed when I read this post
the Google plans come December (3 days away) so, I guess I'll just use
Internet servers email and go with Safari and/or 'The Firefox'.
Anyway as I see
it Google is cutting their own throat in a slow and clumsy way with a
