Why does Google cancel many of its products so often?
Over the years, I've mourned the loss of some of my favorite Google products: Gtalk, Hangout, Picasa, Google+ (yes, even that one)... to name a few. What's the reason for this?
Is it because it's not as noticeable when other companies do it? Or is it because Google is not good at maintaining successful products?
One opinion I've heard in the past was that Google makes so much $$$$ with Adwords that it can afford to waste resources on failed products. True or False?
