Sorry Google; you can Keep it to yourself

GigaOm on the new app Keep by Google:

It might actually be good, or even better than Evernote. But I still won’t use Keep. You know why? Google Reader.

How about a pledge? If you build it, we use it, and you use our personal data to make your other products better or your ad sales executives richer, then you will keep it around.

You make a service available for free, you dominate the market, then yank it. Will they stop developing Android? It’s not like they are making a shitload of money with it. Will they kill Chrome? It’s free, they don’t make money on it. This is an advertising company everyone mistakes for a software and technology one.

I thought I would never say this, but Google was better off with Eric Schmidt at the helm. Larry Page is a Bozo.
