Google on Monday shut down Reader, its Web-based RSS feed reader.
In March, Google announced that the service, which was launched in 2005, would be going away on July 1 because of declining usage. The announcement sent a small group of loyal followers looking for alternatives, and spurred sites like Digg and Feedly to offer their own reader services.
Reader certainly isn't the first product the Web giant has shut down -– and it likely won't be the last, judging by Google's history. Here’s a look back at some Google products that have been phased out, sunsetted, or just plain shut down.
Note: This is by no means a comprehensive list of no-longer-available Google products, just a (rather large) sampling that stood out to us. Tell us in the comments what shuttered Google products you miss the most.
