Goodbye, Google Services

Google is closing down some of its many services, including Google Video and Google Notebook.

Now, I use Notebook ALL THE TIME, so I panicked until I read that the service itself will continue to function (just development is shutting down).

Google Video is another disappointing closure, as it has been host to a number of longer-running documentaries and shows. Will YouTube be an adequate replacement? We'll see.

No word on another Google Service that I use DAILY, GrandCentral.


  1. I'm so sad about Google Notebook! I use it at least several times every day.

    I know the service is continuing, but I'm nervous they'll decide to pull the plug one day.

  2. I know exactly how you feel! I use Notebook all the time, thanks to the gadget on my homepage and the ff extension.

    I use it to keep notes in class, write down project ideas, etc. It's like a notepad I always have with me on every computer in the world.
