Spring cleaning … in spring! April 2012
April’s crop of cuts contained few that anyone would lament. The most interesting was an online mapping app developed by Google called the Flu Vaccine Finder. Google handed over all of its development tools to the HealthMap effort at Children’s Hospital Boston and Harvard Medical School.
We also saw the usual demise of a bunch of APIs, a browsing assistant nobody ever used called Google Related, a mobile version of Google Talk, the long-lamented Picasa for Linux (which had maybe 10 users), and the One Pass payment method for online publishers.
