Microsoft’s adCenter Analytics has not yet left beta, and it appears that it will not ever do so. The company announced today that the program will be shut down at the end of the year.
This is far from the only product that Microsoft cancels (or unit that gets shut down). This is part of an avalanche that relates to financial trouble. No wonder Microsoft has resorted to frivolous lawsuits. █

Update: Mary Jo Foley has coverage too.
Just heard from one user via e-mail, who requested anonymity. He said:
