Yahoo Briefcase to Close Down By March 30
Today, I decided to access my Briefcase to get my resume and copypaste it to oDesk, when Yahoo warned that they'll shut it down by March 30. Here's why:
We will close Yahoo! Briefcase on Tuesday, March 30, 2009. After this date, you will be unable to access Yahoo! Briefcase or your files within the Yahoo! Briefcase account.
Why? Because, in a Web 2.0 world where Yahoo! Mail has unlimited storage and Flickr offers media sharing, users and services have outgrown what the Yahoo! Briefcase service can provide. As such, Yahoo! is closing Yahoo! Briefcase to focus our efforts elsewhere.
So right now I'm getting most of my files off the account and save them to a USB thumbdrive, in order to prevent a loss after a online storage provider suddenly shut down without warning a few years ago.
