Google Shutting Down And Tweaking Even More Services In "Spring Cleaning"
AdSense for Feeds will be retired starting October 2nd, with December 3rd being the official closing date. Publishers can continue to use FeedBurner URLs powered by Google, so they won’t need to redirect subscribers to different URLs. Classic Plus is a Google Search feature that lets people upload or select images to use as a background on Google.com, but after October 16th, users won't be able to upload new images. Starting in November, it'll be canned altogether. Perhaps one of the more disturbing changes has to do with Google Storage. For those with legacy storage option (paid), the purchased storage + free storage setup will fade, and instead you'll be downsized to jut the amount of storage you paid for. In other words, those with 25GB total will soon see 20GB total. Ouch.
Places Directory was an Android app that helped people find nearby places of interest, but according to Google, all of that can now be found in Maps, so that app has been yanked. For more on what's changing, you can visit the Via link.
