Yahoo Briefcase to close on Mar 30, 2009

Logged in to my Yahoo Briefcase account and found that Yahoo is closing its Briefcase service. I use Yahoo's Briefcase extensively to back up my files and so was disappointed to read that message.

Since past year or so, Yahoo's service seems to be on the down. I used to like its My Yahoo portal's Classic layout. Next thing I see is that they totally destroy it with its supposedly cooler, new layout! Worse, they took away the option of reverting back to its classic layout for the users who preferred that layout!

Similarly, used to like its Map Directions but they made changes there as well. Am not sure why, in the name of innovation, companies mess up things that have been working. Sometimes, innovation involves not messing with the existing things so much that your customers flee. But then if Yahoo had known these things, probably it, rather than Google, would have been the leading Search company.
