INTERNET: GOODBYE GOOGLE WAVE, USERS NOT ENTHUSIASTIC
Goodbye Google Wave; the social networking/email system was not successful and Google has decided to do away with it. The program was launched in May 2009 amid much fanfare at a developer conference, but Google has had to acknowledge that “the ‘wave’ did not meet as much success as expected”. It will remain active until the end of the year, after which the technology will be used for other Google services. .
