Submission Google Terminates Lively 1

FornaxChemica writes: "In a surprise move, Google announced today, both on-site and in its blog, that it will shut down permanently its 3D virtual world Lively by the end of the year, becoming one of Google's few scrapped products and one of the most short-lived too, barely lasting 6 months. No official reason was given, only that Google wants to 'prioritize his resources and focus more on his core search, ads and apps business.' Lively might have taken too much and given back too little, even by Google's standards."

The life of a repo man is always intense.
