One more to go...Yahoo! Briefcase

I wonder why all these things have to go...Yahoo! Briefcase is now being closed....perhaps market forces? Recently I checked my Briefcase and was wondering how come they have not upgraded the data storage, which is still at 30 MB, same as like 10 years back, which was like WOW at that time. With all the extra GBs we got for email accounts, I am sure they could have allocated a small chunk of that amount to these services as well, than the so called 'decline of users' wouldn't have taken place. When MSN is all excited by SkyDrive and Google, on verge of launching its own version of GDrive, it is strange to see some one as Yahoo!, one of the pioneers to offer free web space is scaling down.

The cruel world, driven my market forces, and steered by economic crises has already taken a high toll on my memories, first they took away Yahoo! Photos, MSN Chatrooms, Tripod(recently got email to backup before the closure, they were one of the first people to offer free personal website), MSN Groups etc.

I have nothing against what's going on and all, but all this time, I need to take my backups and look for alternative sites....*sigh*
