Microsoft Shuts Down MS Money

Microsoft announced today that it will stop selling its personal finance program, MS Money, at the end of this month.  The Redmond, WA-based company cited banks and websites which provide similar services as the reason for discontinuing the program, which had already been removed from retail stores last year and is available only online.  This is the latest in a series of cost-cutting closures by Microsoft, which has recently shut down its encyclopedia Encarta, antivirus software Windows OneCare, and Digital Image Suite, a photo manipulation program.
