Google is certainly looking to have only great and popular services. After Buzz, the company is all set to axe several more services like Google Wave, Knol, Bookmarks list among few others. Here is the list of some of the services that Google will be shutting down in the months to come:

Google Wave – It will be turned off on April 30, 2012.
Google Knol – Google Knol will no longer be available after October 1, 2012.
Now, we have to wait and see whether Google will simply continue to enhance the existing products or if there are surprises for internet users in the months to come.
Google has already acquired more than 50 companies this year. And now before this festive season, the Internet giant has acquired two startups – ‘Apture’ and ‘Katango’. The acquisitions will help Google to enhance the user experience for its browser and social networking services. Apture basically focuses on providing instant access to information with the in-page search technology that will help Google for its web browser – ‘Chrome’.
Katango builds algorithms for sorting friends that improves online social interaction, which will help Google with their social networking platform ‘Google Plus’ to organize circles in a smarter way. Google has bought more than 100 companies and many of which have been startup firms in the past few years to enhance the user experience.
