Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "A war between two of the major conglomerates will always have casualties, and unfortunately for us, this time we are the casualties. We aren't yet at a state where it is impossible to use Google services on Microsoft platforms, but we are moving towards a stricter ecosystem world where we might see Googlers/Gmail users on one side and Bingers/Outlook users on the other. We can only hope for the sake of technologies future and for the sake of innovation that the two companies can learn to work together in an ever expanding world of data." We can hope so, but we're talking large companies, and large companies do not care about users. Never have, never will.

Yes, I suppose some products are axed simply because they are not generating enough revenue or interest (overall, 10 million might be a drop in the bucket to google).

They ARE out to make money, I don't forget that, but that does not negate hard working employees and their relationship with customers/clients.

I guess I am being extreme in the other direction. I know of what you speak... it's kind of like electing a politician that promises all bread will be buttered, then he simply throws the bread away once he's elected.
