Google Inbox is going away

Who the fuck thought is was a good idea to sunset Inbox? I fucking hate regular Gmail and inbox was the one fucking sane thing to come out of google after search and YouTube.
Who the fuck made the stupid fucking decision?? Burn in hell motherfucka!!!

I genuinely love inbox and how uncluttered and less anxious it makes me feel. You have no idea what regular gmail does to my stress levels. It’s not what you add to gmail. Inbox was a genuine attempt to start UI from scratch and it worked.

Seriously FU to the person who decided to sunset it. Hope all your emails get leaked to the public.

    Inbox sucks. Just my opinion. Fucking hard to find what I’m looking for

      Just trust their filters and make it learn by marking things. Works like a fucking charm after a day. Seriously Inbox is like the personal Assitant I wished I could afford.

      Snooze and only some bundles once a week. Although Gmail seem to have added the snooze function too. But I'd really miss bundles. Especially when you're going on a trip. It automatically bundles all your airlines, hotel reservations

      @jwjshvyrja: exactly! And I use bundles on a daily basis. All shipping notifications, updates, financial... all placed and presented beautifully. It’s what email should have been all along. I fucking hate Apple mail on iOS and outlook is fucking stupid. Inbox just works all the fucking time. It’s predictable and let’s me live my life. I don’t have to think twice before I open this app or focus and concentrate on which emails to read. If it’s imp enough, I’ll know about it.

      Yeah sorry man.. I'm just a little cog in a giant corp machine.. No amount of internal outrage will make corp listen.. Unless it's something that triggers the SJWs.. LOL

      I don't think these people get to decide. Decisions like this probably are taken by Exec people. I guess you are not at the top of your leetcode game. Hence the rant.

    Yeah, we pretty much can predict external outrage, from internal reactions. Yet, execs don't even listen

      Idk.. G is a giant corp borg now.. they only care about revenues and profit margins now.. Having another email app doesn't align with that.

      It's sad that having 10 communication apps is the correct strategy for them but can't fund a useful email client.

    Just keep it alive or open source what you can. How much would it cost to just keep it running? We can take it from there and add features. Just put what you can obv on github. Let the project live on pls.

    Remember this great little experimental thing called Wave? It was a pretty awesome if still rough collaboration tool. Then it got a scrapped and turned into fucking Google+ and we all know how that's gone.
    It's what Google does, they come up with something awesome, then murder it, and attempt to reanimate bits of the corpse in other things.

      No it wasn't turned into G+. Some of the real-time collaboration technology is used in all Google suites products (Docs, Sheets, etc.)

      Yes some of the collaboration tech is but not in any impressive or interesting way, it's pretty much the exact same sare a document with someone as is done in many other ways.
      The other things that made it useful and interesting were killed, or (seemingly) halfassed into +
