Google officially debuts Google Keep note taking service
As expected, Google has taken its note-taking service Google Keep live. The new app and service allow users to make color-coded notes, create checklists, and also add pictures to existing notes as part of its <a href="" rel='nofollow'>Google Drive</a>-based suite of apps.<br />
<br />
The service has appeared in some screenshots published on <a href="" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">Google+</a> dating as far back as July 2012, according <a href="" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">to</a> <em>Android Police</em>, and appeared to go <a href="" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">live</a> within Drive for a few hours before engineers noticed the mistake. Functioning similarly to Google Notebook, Keep includes options to archive notes, sending them to the bottom of a note list, along with a thumbnail view and list view, though the latter did not display stored images correctly. 

<br />
<br />
Google has released a full app for the service, a departure from the usual all-in-one app Google currently uses for Drive. The app includes a lock screen widget for devices running Android 4.2 or greater. Users can access, edit and create new notes on the <a href="" rel='nofollow'>web</a> and "in the coming weeks" according to Google, users will able to do the same directly from Google Drive.<br />

NO way...
Google retires technologies to quickly and for no good reasons at time. Google Sync, Google Reader any one? Even if something has a strong user base, its no guarantee that Google wont just shut it down. I don't trust them any more.
