Google To Shut Down More Seven Products
The out-of-season "spring clean" brings an end to services including Google Wave, Knol and Google Gears.It is the third time Google has announced a cull of several of its products at the same time after they had failed to take off.Experts said the strategy might put off users from signing up to new services.
"We're in the process of shutting 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," said Urs Holzle, Google's vice president of operations at the official google blog.

The list includes -
•    Google Wave - An attempt to combine email and instant messaging for real-time collaboration.
•    Google Bookmarks Lists - A service which allowed users to share bookmarks with friends.
•    Google Friend Connect - A service that allowed webmasters to add social features to their sites by embedding a snippet of code.
•    Google Gears -  A much-hyped effort to maintain web browser functionality when working offline.
•    Knol - A Wikipedia-style project, which aimed to improve web content.
•    Renewable Energy Cheaper than Coal - A project which aimed to find ways to improve solar power.
•    Google Search Timeline - A graph of historical query results.
