Unfortunately, I'm just realizing that it's only about *Mobile* products, so I'm a little bit disappointed :-/

Unfortunately, Google deletes an idea if they don't like it. I just had mine pulled off:(

Mine is still there, and not related to Google Mobile at all ^^

When I try logging in to see the ideas already posted, I keep getting "unknown datastore error".

Interesting that the layout of this looks so similar to gmail's layout.

How do I know this isn't a fake?

Guess it lets them see how popular different features would be and wether they are worth developing. Good Idea.

Hope theres some other people out there still running WM2003 :P (Gears currently only works with WM5+)

Because the FAQs are hosted on a google.com domain which links to both the Products Idea site and the blog:

And because the post on the blog was written by a Google employee (Ethan Ambabo)

Are they closing it? I do not understand their post.

Sounds like this is a test to see how well it works, if it does they will use it for more areas. I don't see anything about them closing it.

OK good, I missunderstood "kicking off"

>>Google's launched a new Google Product Ideas blog as well as a Product Ideas for Google Mobile site where users can submit feature and product ideas and vote on others.
