BANGALORE, INDIA: Yahoo Podcasts will be no more after October 31.


Although the company has not released any official statement, the homepage of Yahoo Podcasts says, "Yahoo apologizes deeply, but we will be closing down the Podcasts site on October 31, 2007.’’

Yahoo had launched Podcasts in October 2005 but the company never took the service beyond its beta release. The site offers podcasting search, directory and listening service.

The latest closure from Yahoo comes after it discontinued Yahoo Bill Pay, Yahoo Auctions, WebJay and Yahoo Photos earlier in the year.

Photo sharing site Yahoo Photos has now became Flickr. Yahoo had acquired Flickr in 2005.
