Yahoo Announces More Service Eliminations
Nearly a year ago Yahoo announced the elimination of People Search, Xobni and their Chrome toolbar.
One of the many changes that users will see in the Web tech company’s lineup is the discontinuation of support for Yahoo mail on the built-in Mail app for iOS devices running iOS 4 or earlier. Instead, users will have to access their Yahoo Mail on their mobile Web browser. Also, while the Yahoo Maps site is closing at the end of June, Yahoo will continue to support Maps on Yahoo search and other properties including Flickr.
Other changes to Yahoo and their technologies include the discontinuation of support for Yahoo Pipes in August and the closing of Yahoo Music in France and Canada in mid-June.
