From news yesterday...................
Yahoo is taking a leaf out of Google's business book, and closing down seven products that aren't bringing home the bacon.
These are: Yahoo App Search, Yahoo Sports IQ, Yahoo Clues, Yahoo Message Boards, Yahoo Updates API, Yahoo Avatars, and the Yahoo app for BlackBerry.
Yahoo announced the closures on its company blog. It said it was regulating its product line-up, and would do so regularly. "The most critical question we ask is whether the experience is truly a daily habit that still resonates for all of you today," Jay Rossiter, Yahoo's executive vice president of Platforms, wrote on the blog.
It's the second batch of products that have been given the heave-ho since Marissa Meyer took over as CEO. Mayer was previously at Google, where "spring cleaning" announcements -- in which it nixes products and services that aren't performing well -- are a regular occurrence.
Great, great news, long overdue....please let it be finance as well...I hope it happens so that all you crazy, ignorant and scared right wing shut-ins that spend your entire, puny lives posting post after post after post, etc. go so crazy that it drives you out of doors...maybe then there will be some hope for you. Until then, #$%$ OFF, ALL OF YOU!!!!! Seriously, I hope your miserable little dix fall off.
But not finance
