Google discontinues AdSense for Feeds, Classic Plus and other products

Google announced today, on its official blog, another wave of deactivations in order to bring focus and prioritization to its work. The affected teams will be redirected to other products of greater relevance at the moment.

In this new phase of cancellations, the search engine mentions that it will turn off the following products: AdSense for Feeds, Classic Plus (the background option for the Google homepage), Gadgets on Google Spreadsheet (“Spreadsheets” in Brazil) and the removal of Badges on Google News.

The note also reports two mergers: sharing the free space between Picasa and Drive up to 5 GB and the combination of Google Insights for Search and Google Trends tools in a single product (read more here).
