Google is apparently shutting down its nearly nine-year-old Fusion Tables data tool in a year, the company announced:
Notice: Google Fusion Tables Turndown
I will admit that I have never heard of this product. That said… has “turned down”/”turndown” now entered the Silicon Valley vocabulary? Is “to sunset” no longer euphemistic enough for shutting something off? Will Fusion Tables still operate, but at a much quieter volume? Is Fusion Tables getting a mint on its pillow and its comforter tweaked at a jaunty angle?
