Google axes another useful product

If you use Google’s image management software Picasa, you should start looking into alternatives, because Picasa is headed for the chopping block on March 15. It will continue to work, but it will no longer be supported.

Thanks Google. I love your work, but getting us hooked on something only to yank it away again is getting very annoying.

About jrivett

Jeff Rivett has worked with and written about computers since the early 1980s. His first computer was an Apple II+, built by his father and heavily customized. Jeff's writing appeared in Computist Magazine in the 1980s, and he created and sold a game utility (Ultimaker 2, reviewed in the December 1983 Washington Apple Pi Journal) to international markets during the same period. Proceeds from writing, software sales, and contract programming gigs paid his way through university, earning him a Bachelor of Science (Computer Science) degree at UWO. Jeff went on to work as a programmer, sysadmin, and manager in various industries. There's more on the About page, and on the Jeff Rivett Consulting site.
