Yahoo! Briefcase closing

Apparently Google isn’t the only big web company closing down some of its offering. I got this email today:


I didn’t use the service, but some of my readers (all 2 of them :-p) might, so watch out. As a security side-note: it is nice how Yahoo attaches a little icon to their “official” mails. The problem with this approach is that it isn’t scalable (should every entity has its own icon? who would make sure that the icons are distinct enough?). There is also a lack of awareness (I’m not sure that many people know that “official” mails should have this icon – this was the first time I observed it).
