This is my surprised face.
SV trend of locking up talent to work on vaporware is utter crap.
damn, i was really looking forward to that. super ambitious though.. i get it.
Are you serious? They invested so much into this project over the past 36 months. I remember signing up into the beta group waiting to become a tester; you had to complete challenges and invite friends to sign up to increase your likelihood of joining the beta. After 6 months I unsubscribed from their NewsLetter because the amount of promotion and "brand ambassador-ing" that was involved was ridiculous.....and now they shelf the entire project.
weird, but not entirely surprising. it looked super close to being a real product. https://atap.google.com/ara/
You say "suspended", I say "shit-canned".
