Getting rid of the impeding burden

Personally I adore Google's tactics. They first open myriads of projects, designed for everything that can hardly come into one's mind, then count costs vs. profits and close those least successful. Today the board has announced another series of spin-offs. In the heat of the moment are such portals as Knol (a projected Wiki rival) and Wave (a service designed for corporate communication). The decision also touches upon Google Gears, a web plugin that gives offline access to Gmail and Calender, and the Google Search Timeline's graph of historical results for queries.

I'm sure the majority of you has even never heard of these projects, so you will almost definitely lose nothing because of Google's passion for money :)

Well, those are not Google Desktop, right?

You know, it's just reminded me of the news about some 1960's ex-star death, which we can sometimes hear: I'm not so mature to know them all, I don't know even half of them, so when I'm told they're dead I just shrug my shoulders and come back to my own business. It's hard to hear both about the death of a person and closing of a web projects only if you had the chance to know them, and if they are complete strangers to you than this sad news obviously is but an empty phrase for you.

Well, that's exactly what I mean. I've always wondered, how can a single company waste so much money on such obviously wacky projects, like Google does? Okay, I would get that if they at least tried to attract users, but they don't even carry out any marketing campaign! What is that all for?

I haven't said that ;) No-no-no, that's not what I mean, no-no-no.
