Yahoo Auctions Closing Down

Yahoo Auctions Will Soon Be Defunct
Wow - this is a biggie. Yahoo Auctions will close down on June 16th, a move that essentially concedes the Web-based auction space to (Thanks to for breaking this news).

This is actually a good move for Yahoo, which over the past several years has amassed a huge but often inchaote group of properties that have given it scale but very little integration or coherence. It will be interesting to see whether Yahoo pares other underperforming sites/services from its vast roster in the near future.
