Link: AOL Closing TUAW ☍

Shared on January 30, 2015

Micah Singleton for The Verge:

There goes another one. AOL is shutting down The Unofficial Apple Weblog, better known as TUAW, sources familiar with the situation tell The Verge. The company — which is also shutting down its gaming site Joystiq — is in the midst of a major reorganization, and is cutting back on media properties it deems as underperforming. TUAW’s run comes to an end on February 2nd.

It’s a shame AOL couldn’t make it work with a blog about an exciting tech company making more money than they know what to do with. Jokes aside, I’m sorry to see more folks lose their jobs and a site that I thoroughly enjoyed—especially in its early days—disappear.
