Why? I'm not trying to be snarky, I seriously want to know why. All of Google's products, with the exception of Google Apps, have felt so far off task for the last year it's crazy. Is this a shift to getting the old Google back? Is this simply a situation of all those people who used to work on G+ just being bored and having to justify their paychecks?
Google used to address problems and conquer them. Now they seem to be creating problems by addressing non problems with redundant apps/services in triplicate. Psst... come here. Closer. Closer. Okay, here is a secret. The Holy Trinity does NOT APPLY TO TECH! ;P
So, when I ask why, it's not to be an ass about it, It is because I have most of my tech life tied up in Google products and services and honestly, Google's lack of focus is scaring the crap out of me. How can I trust Google will have my assets at heart when I pour them onto your servers?
Listen, we all invest huge sums of time, thought and creative juices using +Google
services so that you can advertise to us, thus supporting those services. But at this point I do not feel I can trust Google to take anything they are not making a direct cash injection from seriously. How many more services have to get gutted in the name of streamlining? You people do understand that if you keep streamlining everything eventually you just have a line, right? Have you ever tried using and enjoying a simple line? It's not much fun. Hell, it can't be that bad, I keep telling myself. At least I can play connect the streamlined dots. But wait, you folks have streamlined out the dots as well. I DON'T WANT GOOGLE LINES! ;)
Anywho, keep up the
