Google to kill services and jobsMikey 12 comments
Blame the economy or blame declining demand, either way doesn't matter now as Google have just announced and are also a handful of services.
The lay-offs are all from the Human Resources department which might give a clue that Google don't plan to do much hiring in the near future. As for the services set to close, will kill uploading within a few months, the team are no longer working on the project, Jaiku will be closed before it was even launched, and will be killed.
I think most people won't miss any of these with the exception of perhaps Google Video, but that has probably continued on for longer than it should have considering how long ago they acquired Youtube.
