The Official Google Blog reported last night that they will stop accepting new questions for Google Answers later this week. Google Answers has been around for 4 years and has remained relatively primitive compared to the successful Yahoo! Answers. The Google blog also states that more than 800 people
have used worked on getting the answers for Google Answers over the years. That's it? I would be shutting it down too. But at least they've realized this and are cutting their losses.
