Even Google feels the pinch?

In these dark days of the so-called credit crunch it appears that even Google is having to tighten its belt, shutting down a number of services. Although several of them never got out of invite mode, it’s sad to see the likes Jaiku and Notebook being given the boot. Hat-tip: Paul Bradshaw

The interwebs is, like… amazing!
