Yahoo to Shut Down Axis, Browser Plus, Citizen Sports Today and 9 More Soon
Yahoo starts some serious house cleaning from today. The searchengine giant dumps 12 of its products. Yahoo EVP of Platforms, Jay Rossiter, has made the announcement today through official Yahoo Tumblr page. He said that the company actually wants to create essential new products to cop up current needs of users.

The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
