San Francisco, Nov 24: Google Inc, Chief Executive Larry Page has announced  that the company is tossing out some of its products to focus resources on more promising projects.

The major development has come as Google is facing sharp competition in mobile computing and social networking from Apple Inc and Facebook, and as some investors have groused about rising spending at the world's No.1 Internet search company.

Google Senior Vice President of Operations, Urs Holzle in the blog post revealed, "to recap, we're in the process of shutting down a number of products which haven't had the impact we'd hoped for, integrating others as features into our broader product efforts, and ending several which have shown us a different path forward."

The world's most popular Internet search giant also said that the Wave collaborative communication tool that it stopped developing more than a year ago would finally hit the beach and be gone at the end of April next year.

Earlier, Google had announced the end of online newsreader Fast Flip, social search service Aardvark, commenting tool Sidewiki and several other products.
