It just needed more attention and presentation from google. At times they should have stopped thinking like a geek and started thinking like a little child. I believe google has made a wrong decision in not giving google wave its due share. It reminds me of the wrong decision Google took in not giving importance to orkut and creating google plus a few years later. I remember describing facebook as a new orkut to a friend when I created by facebook account.
