…we are sad to announce that we will be closing down.

What happens when that website you are relying on to do all those things you used to do manually closes down? All your notes, or all your expenses, your phone book or your photos. You have spent years updating it and keeping everything on track, you know exactly how much you spent this time last year on your food and you can find any idea you’ve ever thought of by typing in a couple of tags.

Today you get an email that the website is gone. Or worse, you visit the site and are faced with a note, that this website wasn’t really that profitable — sorry, we had to close it down.

Ohh well, shit happens — but we do tend to rely on some of these websites a little too much these days.

I was a bit shitty when Xmarks went out of business. Luckily someone (LastPass) bought them and made them even better. No such luck for some others, example (never used this site before): www.rudder.com. Also see screenshot below.

There are new startups almost every day. One looks (and seems to work) better then the other. Next step is seeing most of them fail and only a few hang around, hopefully the ones you have chosen to go with.

Вот придет день, и закроется какое-то говно, как например одноклассники.ру — и будете вы рыдать! Хотя сколько дебилов в этом мире, они никогда не перестанут покупать виртуальные цветочки — так что это наверно плохой пример.
