Microsoft abandons some MSN services

The typhoon that has been going on at Microsoft has claimed new victims apart from the 7800 people that will soon lose their jobs – Microsoft has announced it will eliminate some MSN-branded apps from its services list. The list of apps that will soon go into history includes the MSN Health & Fitness, MSN Travel and MSN Food & Drink apps for all platforms, including Windows, Android and iOS.

A few weeks ago Microsoft sold its Bing map-data-collection assets to Uber and also said goodbye to display ads. The end of the MSN Health & Fitness, MSN Travel and MSN Food & Drink apps will not come so quickly – Food & Drink will end on September 28, while Travel will do so on the same day; Health & Fitness will cease to exist on November 1. As of now it seems that all other MSN services will survive and will make it to Windows 10, which arrives in about 2 weeks time.
