California-based Search engine giant Google has announced that the company will be shutting down Google PowerMeter and Google Health, which are two of its grand projects.
The reason behind taking this step is because the projects fell short of meeting the company’s desired success.
The aims of the projects were to distribute energy and provide better healthcare respectively, for an internet oriented world.
Google Health was started in May 2008 and helped users store medical records on web. The company said, while the service was a major success with the techies, it fell flat with the general public, a Reuters report said.
Google said that the users will be able to reclaim their private information from the Google Health website until January 1, 2013. Google PowerMeter, however, will shut down on September 16.
The decision came within three months of co-founder Larry Page’s term as the company’s Chief Executive, the report said.
