Google Health and Google PowerMeter Being Given the Axe

Official Google Blog: An update on Google Health and Google PowerMeter: "In the coming months, we’re going to retire two products that didn’t catch on the way we would have hoped, but did serve as influential mode..."

ATTENTION GOOGLE: Maybe the reason some of your technologies don't catch on is because you do such a poor job marketing them. I didn't even know there was a Google Health until about 2 months ago when I noticed that my Android CardioTRAINER App supported upload to it. Considering your poor marketing savvy it is a miracle you have become the company you have. And the Power thing? Didn't know about it until just now.

Maybe I am a bit more in the dark than most people, or maybe not. Was anyone else as clueless as me about these 2 projects? Perhaps, Google, you should use some of that white space on the Google search page to feature a different Google product every week. Not a ton of gaudy advertising, but just an image and a few lines of description with a link to learn more.

You guys come out with TONS of ideas and test products every year, too many for us mortals to keep up with on our own. You need to help us a little to know what you are up to, keeping in mind that not everyone in the world follows you on Twitter, but almost everyone in the world uses your search page.

I for one am sorry to see Google Health go. I may not 100% trust Google with my data, but I hardly trust Microsoft HealthVault at all. Guess I will be cozying up to it over the next few weeks. Maybe my opinion of HealthVault will change as I learn more about it.
