Google today announced some "Winter Cleaning," which will see it shutter a few mobile products and services. In particular, Google said that as of January 30, 2013, consumers won't be able to set up new devices using Google Sync. Devices that already use Google Sync will continue to work. Google suggests that people use IMAP, CalDAV and CardDAV instead to duplicate those services. Google Sync for Symbian S60 handsets will also no longer be available after January 30, 2013. Google is killing off Google Calendar Sync for all mobile devices today, December 14. Last, Google plans to get rid of Punchd, a service that lets Android and iOS device owners manage their retail loyalty cards. Punchd will go inactive starting June 7, 2013.
