Yahoo briefcase is closing!

…just a month to download all your content stored in Yahoo Briefcase!!
Yeah! I logged in to Yahoo Mail after more 2/3 days, this is very unusual but I was on travel so couldn’t check the mails.
Now what I see, the new mail from Yahoo, about the shutting down Yahoo briefcase feature.
I’ve been Yahoo user since I started using internet and I’ve been loyal to them.
Yahoo briefcase was one of the unique feature Yahoo had. No email service provider dot com had this feature available to its users for free. So I am sure there must be plenty of them, old timers like me who had been using Yahoo briefcase. 
It’s really sad looking at the Yahoo cutting each of its feather (oops I mean feature)  one by one.
It was Yahoo photos, now it’s Yahoo briefcase

Dear Yahoo! Briefcase user,
We will officially close Yahoo! Briefcase on March 30, 2009. Until then, we are offering you the opportunity to download your files back to your computer. You need to take action before we close, after which any files remaining on Yahoo! Briefcase will be deleted and no longer accessible.

Yahoo used to offer 30MB storage space. I remember email storage rage back when Google introduced GMail. Hotmail was reluctant to offer same storage space as its competitors and hence lost its costomers big time (I was one of them) & now when we see, Windows Live offers 25 GB of storage space (known as skydrive) absolutely free to live ID holders, its sad to see the opposite move from Yahoo.
