So in the past couple of months, Google rolled out some new web products like Google Wave and Google Buzz. As far as Wave is concerned, there was a brief discussion earlier questioning it as fantastic or failure shortly before AnonBCA announced it as one of the top innovations of 2009. I remember reading about Wave scoring well amongst the D&D crowd for allowing them to play virtually through the software, but otherwise haven’t heard about it since. What about Buzz? I saw a few Buzzes show up in my Gmail account within the first two days of its existence and the embedded nature has made it already track on a good majority of my contacts. But that product, too, seems to have crickets chirping loudly in the hallway as not a bit of activity has transpired in it. What do you think, has Google failed completely or are these tools just misunderstood?
