Gone Google Gone: Top 10 Discontinued Google Products


7. Slide

Google acquired Slide, a social gaming and slideshow application, in 2010 for $182 million and killed the product one year later in August 2011 to make way for Google+. Slide was founded by Max Levchin, one of the co-founders of PayPal. After Google killed the product, Levchin, who was a vice president of engineering at Google, left the company. Levchin, who helped start Yelp in 2004, is currently the co-founder and CEO of Affirm, a maker of an app that lets users quickly pay for online purchases without a credit card.
