Google has said they're going to shut down G+. It's been amazing to get to know everyone here. I've met some of the best people and gotten to know so much from everyone here. Feel free to reach out to me on Twitter or Telegram (DM me on Twitter for more info if needed)

So long, and thanks for all the fish

I'd love to have a way to have favorite emojis. I never use half the emoji and because of Unicode there's so many that I have a hard time finding the ones I use the most (I know about recent emoji, but I use just enough that this doesn't work for me)

I can't seem to download the US Spanish language from the menu. Says network error every time

the http://badat.design domain was the best use of money I've ever spent

Google is the new Yahoo

Remember Yahoo? Twenty years ago, Yahoo.com got more traffic than any site on the internet. But it failed to evolve.

In place of evolution or innovation, Yahoo simply started buying everything with the intention of integrating it. But it was unable to integrate anything in a compelling way.

Eventually, Yahoo simply became the company that closed things. It quickly became clear that nobody should invest any time, energy or money into supporting or using Yahoo because whatever product you invested in would likely be shut down, killed off, closed for business.

Now, Google is the new Yahoo.

Google is the company that kills its own products.

Google's M.O. is to launch some new product or service with great fanfare, convince it's loyal fans to go all-in, allow those fans to devote countless hours with the product, then kill the product and leave the devoted fans with nothing.

They did it with Reader, Inbox, Answers, Lively, Glass, Orkut, Buzz, Wave, Nexus Q, Dodgeball and many others.

The closure of Google+ is the biggest slap in the face ever, by far.

Google told us Google+ was the future of Google. So we jumped in and engaged. Personally, I've spent thousands of hours lovely crafting publication-quality opinion pieces. This is what I do for a living, and I gave my time and labor over to Google+ for free.

Now, Google is going to flush all my work down the toilet.

Yours, too.

Google has been working hard for years to push away its most loyal fans. Now, Google is going even further.

In fact, the killing of Google+ is a perfect storm of Google's vision vacuum. It's driven by their antipathy toward passionate users, and also their failure to understand the human element generally.

Google has failed utterly with every social network they've ever launched, and the reason is that, culturally, Google simply can't understand human beings.

I recently got rid of my MacBook Pro and bought a high-end Pixelbook. And I was leaning toward buying a Pixel 3. But now I'm off the fence. I'll be buying iPhones from now on.

And I can't even imagine what will happen when Google decides to kill Google Photos.

Google simply can't be trusted.

Google is the new Yahoo, the company that kills its own products.

Which Google product is next?
