Microsoft Cans Finance Tool - Money Plus
Microsoft is pulling the plug on its personal finance management tool Money Plus. The move comes as a range of similar tools available from banks, brokerage firms, and websites have made Money Plus redundant.
Microsoft had already stopped annual updates to Money in 2008, it will now stop selling the product post June 30, 2009. The software giant said all purchased Money products must be activated prior to January 31, 2011.
The Money Plus portfolio consists of Microsoft Money Essentials, Microsoft Money Plus Deluxe, Microsoft Money Plus Premium, and Microsoft Money Plus Home & Business. Current Money Plus users can continue using the product (except for Money Essentials) though online services will no longer be available.
Microsoft however said its MSN Money website will continue to function as before, with enhancements and new features planned for the coming months.
