Blogger and Picasa aren’t going away, of course — they’re two of Google’s most popular products. Instead, according to two sources familiar with the matter, Google intends to rename Picasa “Google Photos” and Blogger will become “Google Blogs.”
...The transition from Picasa and Blogger to Google Photos and Google Blogs will occur “in a month to a month and a half,” we’ve been told. The date aligns with the likely public launch of Google+.
This is sad news and a huge huge marketing mistake. I've written many times about my personal fatigue of the Google XYZ product name. It's just boring and lame. Blogger and Picassa have a history to them and an already established brand name. Why loose all of that? Who is doing these bad decisions at G?
