Google (GOOG) makes plenty of acquisitions in a year, and while some succeed, it's clear others don't. A week after its $200M acquisition of Slide officially became a bust, Google is shutting down its Aardvark Q&A service, which it bought for $50M last year. The company has also shuttered its PowerMeter and Google Health projects this year.
