BBC News – Google kills off seven more products including Wave

Google has announced that it is dropping seven more products in an effort to simplify its range of services.

The out-of-season "spring clean" brings an end to services including Google Wave, Knol and Google Gears.

It is the third time that the US firm has announced a cull of several of its products at the same time after they had failed to take off.

via BBC News – Google kills off seven more products including Wave. So most of the products make sense to kill off they either never generated much traction or were already supposed to be cut. However the big thing that got cut that I want to know more about is the “Renewable Energy Cheaper than Coal”. Why was it cut, the goal was unachievable, just pure business decisions or money better spent in other renewable energy projects?
