Google is known for its collection of wildly popular products, from search to maps to Android.

But not everything the company touches turns to gold.

Google Glass was supposed to change the world, but it quickly became a punch line. And remember Google Buzz?

Now, Gchat is the latest in a string of discontinued Google products.

Here’s a look at some Google products that are now relics of the past:

/*Used to keep captions inside the visible area*/
#foogallery-gallery-88462 .foo-item {
max-height: 800px;
}
#foogallery-gallery-88462.border-style-inset a::after {
box-shadow: inset 0 0 20px #000;
-moz-box-shadow: inset 0 0 20px #000;
-webkit-box-shadow: inset 0 0 calc(800px/4) rgba(0,0,0,0.8);
}

/* The Owl Initialization Script
/* The first lines conditionally show the slide animation */
jQuery(function($){
var $galleryContainer = $( ‘#foogallery-gallery-88462’ );
var $containerID = ‘#foogallery-gallery-88462’;

$(document).on(‘keydown’, function( event ) { //attach event listener
if (event.keyCode == 37) {
$galleryContainer.trigger(‘prev.owl’)
}
if (event.keyCode == 39) {
$galleryContainer.trigger(‘next.owl’)
}

});

$galleryContainer.owlCarousel({
items: 1,
nav:true,
margin: 10,
loop:true,
autoplay: false,
autoplaySpeed: 4000,
smartSpeed:250,
navSpeed: 1250,
navText: [‘<‘, ‘>‘],
autoplayHoverPause: true,
lazyLoad: true,
autoWidth: 0 });
});
