Google has announced the end of their on-line collaboration tool, Google Wave. Having obtained a beta invitation, I tested out the tool and found that, while the concept was promising, the usefulness was lacking. The fact they tried to market it as an e-mail replacement was a bit annoying. While email does have its problem, the basic protocol for mail will be hard to replace.  This announcement comes on the heels of Google announce they would also stop production on Google Buzz. Personally, it seems Google was trying to be first in creating the next big thing. And while they tried to generate a lot of Buzz, I think it is time to Wave goodbye to these apps.
