Interestingly, it took longer to die than the whole time he was active, but Google wave finally dies officially today. Since late January the Waves were read-only and now the service is closed permanently. Curious is that wave is one of the services that most interest have been raised in the history of Google (came to invitations to sell for $ 60 on eBay).
And inevitably also compared to Google Buzz, the attempt to create a microblogging service by Google and the recent Google +, the network that has probably made her most serious and despite its relatively low adoption and the company refuses to let go. Google Wave had a handful of innovative ideas and interesting potential uses for all those who remain interested in using it the Apache Foundation took over its development and can be tested in Wave in a Box.
