Grand Central still standing admidst Google Shut Downs

ReadWriteWeb points out that Google is hunkering down for the downturn by shuttering various services (and laying off engineering contractors and external recruiters).  The most significant service beneath the axe is Google Video – but that still leaves them with YouTube.   Amid the carnage, they note that Grand Central was not targeted (at least for now).  That’s good news.

One service in Google’s line-up we have always wondered about is GrandCentral – another service that was acquired before it even went public. Just like some of the services that Google is closing now, GrandCentral never came out of its invite-only mode after being acquired by Google. The fact that it is not being closed now, though, leads us to believe that Google is still having plans for this service.

Update: Oops … Make that recruiters (no modifier)
