Yahoo Closing Old Services for Sharper Focus


Well the latest news with Yahoo is the cutting of more existing products. By April 31st Yahoo will continue to focus on its services and to streamline the company we will see the removal of Yahoo Upcoming, Yahoo Deals, Yahoo Kids, Yahoo SMS Alerts, and Yahoo Mail and Messages for feature phones. In their words…

…we want to bring you experiences that inspire and entertain you every day. That means taking a hard look at all of our products to make sure they are still central to your daily habits. As part of that ongoing effort, today we are shutting down a few more products. We realize that change is hard, but by making tough decisions like these we can focus our energy on building beautiful products for you like the two we introduced this week – Yahoo! Mail for iPad and Android tablets and Yahoo! Weather for iPhone.

Additionally, if you’ve been hanging onto the old version of Yahoo Mail, you’ll have no choice but to switch to the new version by June 3rd.
