Touted as a replacement for email (amongst other things) when launched, Google's Wave application is closing down. Matt Asay over at the Register has a good analysis. There is no doubt in my mind that Google can afford a number of failures as it innovates, but this combined with the recent Nexus One online shop failure might be signalling the start of a trend.
