Google Latitude: another one bites the dust

Google announced today that starting August 9th, Google Latitude (a.k.a. their failed attempt at a Foursquare) will be gone.

The first thing that I thought was “Wait, this thing actually outlived Google Reader?” I think that priorities up in Mountain View have been a little off. (No news there).

The good news is that unlike Google Reader, nobody will really miss Latitude. The bad is that Google is still pretty consistent with their “kill services one by one to keep pushing our pointless Google+” plan. I wonder which will be next.
