Gone Google Gone: Top 10 Discontinued Google Products


9. Aardvark

Aardvark, a social search and question-and-answer service that Google acquired in 2010 for $50 million, was given the heave-ho on Sept. 2, 2011. At that time, Aardvark co-founder Max Ventilla informed users that they would have just 19 days to retrieve their data.

"While Aardvark will be closing, we'll continue to work on tools that enable people to connect and discover richer knowledge about the world," wrote Alan Eustace, Google senior vice president, in a blog post at the time.
