    There really should be a website like this that keeps track of popular & useful "free" things, documents the things they promise, and then tracks the date at which they turn into crap. A bit like, but for the enshittification of cloud services.

    Be wary. Google is known to kill off products, and Keep hasn’t gotten much in the way of upgrades in years. See

    The google graveyard is immense. Stadia was surprisingly abrupt, although I didn't follow the financials of that venture.

  • I think GCP is better than AWS – by Fernando Villalba

    Google have shut down _plenty of paid_, and non consumer products.

    Ones I have personal experience with include Stadia (paid), and app maker (business). doesn't struggle to find content.

    Not going to happen; they kill consumer, not enterprise products. Search for "Google Cloud" and the only dead products would worried me are Google Cloud Messaging and Google Cloud Prediction API. But then they replaced them with Firebase Cloud Messaging and Vertex AI, so it's a wash.

    This really resonates with me – yeah, the supposed API-driven engineering company, makes it no longer possible to automatically provision domain names for its "valuable" cloud computing customers?

    What possible end could that serve? I am baffled by the idea that succeeding via open access to their infrastructure is not a serious long-term goal for Google.

    For a company who ostensibly is __existentially__ interested in developing at least one meaningful complement to it advertising business, of all the things over the years, why the domain registrar? The cost to developer trust vs. the cost of operations – did they not even have that conversation?

    Now I imagine how I would've felt to have my registration transferred to – I can't even recall who bought their customers – and I try to imagine putting faith in trusting GCP products with a startup idea, where ostensibly their second-mover advantage could let me move faster in greenfield development ... and I throw my hands up. This is a company acting like it places value on its goodwill, not even from a bare bean counter perspective.

    I guess I'll stick to AWS (and more bespoke cloud offerings).
