Yahoo Will Close all Messenger Public Chat Rooms On December 14

A tough decision by Yahoo about Yahoo Messenger public chat. They declared they will shut down all Yahoo public chat rooms by Dec 14.
Yahoo clears they are going to discontinue features which are no longer adding enough values for users. I wonder why Yahoo thinks Yahoo messenger is not adding any value to messenger users. It is one of the leading online messenger (of course free of charge) with a little trouble from spammers. Though spammers are a little disturbance for me, I personally like Yahoo Messenger. I do not think Yahoo decided to discontinue messenger just because of their inability to fight the spammers. They are one of the leading IT firm and has the potential to beat spammers.

Yahoo messenger is not just the product they are discontinuing. Along with Yahoo messenger, we are going to miss Yahoo! Messenger Pingbox, Yahoo! Messenger inter operability with Microsoft Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo! Voice Phone In and Phone Out feature are also condemned. By January 30, 2013 we will no longer able to use Yahoo Voice Phone service. Those who have funds remain in the account will get a refund from Yahoo. Other three features will be discontinuing from 14 December 2012.

I am optimistic and feel Yahoo will introduce another wonderful product instead of Yahoo Messenger. So I am waiting for their another announcement about the introduction of a better messenger service free from possible spammers.

Building Blocks for Virtual Businesses : Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world

This is a guest post by Ripley Daniels about "Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world.

Whenever I tell friends I had a tough day at the office, they laugh at me. That's because they know I don't really have an office. I work very hard but I work for a company that is completely remote. Only a few of my co-workers ever go into an office at all and when they do, it's only for short periods of time. Our "office" is a virtual one. To us, the traditional office workplace is a thing of the past, alongside Tyrannosaurus Rex, the slide rule, and telephones where you stick your finger in a hole and turn a dial.
Unfortunately, none of this prevents me from having tough days. I still have them. But the reasons have nothing to do with the fact that my co-workers and I don't have a brick and mortar edifice that we can use to plan, strategize, hold our meetings, make presentations, discuss sensitive business topics, build relatio…
