Microsoft has announced that they will be closing their Windows Live Expo service on July 31, 2008. The site originally was developed to compete against Craigslist a very popular site to sell and buy items on. On the WLE site it states:

Windows Live Expo will discontinue service on 31 July 2008. In preparation, the following features are no longer available:

  • Create a new account.
  • Post a new listing.
  • Extend a listing.
  • Upgrade a listing to a premium listing.

All current listings will remain on expo.live.com until they expire.

Which makes one wonder. The ‘Live’ of anything Microsoft currently has, is not working very well against the likes of companies such a Google. Which could led one to believe that Microsoft may really need Yahoo in order to succeed on the Internet.What do you think?

Comments welcome.
