Yahoo to Shut Down Axis, Browser Plus, Citizen Sports Today and 9 More Soon

[titlle]

Yahoo starts some serious house cleaning from today. The search engine 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. And shutting down of these products will help "to sharpen our focus and deliver experiences that enhance your daily lives"

The search app of Yahoo! Axis and two other services of Yahoo! Browser Plus and Citizen Sports are closed today i.e. June 28, 2013. While publishers cannot use Yahoo! WebPlayer service after June 30, 2013. Two more will shut down on very next day. Yahoo! RSS Alerts and FoxyTunes won't work after July 1, 2013. After exactly a week of this shut down, 2 other services of Yahoo! Neighbors Beta and AltaVista will also be closed on July 8, 2013. Sigh of grief for AltaVista. It is the one that I like the most and it is really a popular one. Yahoo! Stars India will see closure on July 25, 2013 and Yahoo! Downloads Beta on July 31, 2013. Last and lately closed two are Yahoo! Local API and Yahoo! Term Extraction API that will stop working after September 28, 2013.

It's a big list though with some famous names on it like AltaVista and Axis. But it actually is the need of the time to say goodbye to these old services. It is then possible for Yahoo to focus and bring a fresh line up in order to compete with Google.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. 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.
