The proof that Google doesn’t give a a flying monkey about Jaiku
Years ago it seems I asked for my Jaiku invite, but it never got processed. Today I stumbled over Jaiku again, found a ‚Join Now‘ button and gave it a try. Mobile activation was defunct – and Stormgrass informed me that Google was planning to shut Jaiku down. That news had come out in January – now Jaiku is still up but if you ever had a doubt that it is dying, have a look at this: Jaiku doesn’t even have the permssion for a secure authorization request!
The poor people at Jaiku – it must really suck to see your baby go down the Tube like that. I wonder if they still have to show up for work?
