Yahoo Shutting Down Maps, Pipes and Other Tools 

Yahoo Shutting Down Maps, Pipes and Other Tools

Yahoo is on a rationalization spree.  It is shutting down some of it very popular apps and some location specific TV and Music web channels.  I think the app which will be most missed will be the Yahoo Pipes.  It has some die-hard fans and no other app really speaking can replace its functionality of aggregating content.

Along with the maps site, the company will stop supporting Yahoo Mail for Apple’s built-in mail app running on iOS 5 or older versions of the operating system, effective June 15. Apple’s latest version is iOS 8.3, and the company is expected to release another annual update this year. Yahoo Pipes, a tool that aggregates Web content for developers, will be shuttered at the end of September.

Yahoo said it would close some of its regional, genre-specific media operations, including Yahoo Music in France and Canada; Yahoo TV in Canada and some European countries; and Yahoo Entertainment in Singapore. (Source: WSJ Story)

Yahoo has already announced lay offs for 1% of its staff in February.
