Summary: Another Microsoft product put near the firing line
Last year, Microsoft decided to axe its book scanning (and search) project. In essence, it lost this race to Google. Microsoft has some other me-too projects which virtually copy Google (Maps, Apps, etc.) and another one if them seems to be dying. Some people never even heard of it.
Microsoft plans to “significantly scale back” its Soapbox service, the would-be YouTube challenger it launched in 2006. Whatever that means.
This is part of a never-ending series of dead/dying Microsoft products. Last week it was Microsoft Money. █
