Google Shutting Down 5 More Services

Google's purge of its tired and least-popular services continues. After closing or combining about 30 offerings since last year's "fall spring-clean," the search giant today announced plans to retire 5 more services that are either redundant or largely ignored by Google's vast user base.

The features slated for the chopping block include:

iGoogle: Google's browser desktop is archaic in today's app-based world. "We originally launched iGoogle in 2005 before anyone could fully imagine the ways that today's web and mobile apps would put personalized, real-time information at your fingertips," writes Matt Eichner, Google's general manager for global enterprise search, in a Tuesday blog post. The service closes on November 1, 2013, which gives iGoogle users a generous 16 months to export their data.
