It looks like some services I love are closing shop Today. Yottamusic, the web service that provided a better interface for Rhapsody (most importantly it connected Last.FM to Rhapsody, why has Rhapsody itself not done that) has a goodbye letter up on its website. Also as of midnight I can no longer access Riya, the photo website with facial recognition that I was such a fan of. How many services that I truly liked and used will I realize have gone under as we hit the new year all over the world?
I had written the founder of Yottamusic a week ago asking about the future of the product and hadn't heard back - but he provided one-touch access to an XML file of your library and playlists if you saved music on the service, and also provided 24 hour turn around to syncing your Yottamusic library with your Rhapsody library, which is at the very least a very thoughtful and respectable addition to the service on the way out its door.
I have written the founder of Riya as well, but I've done this before and heard no response, so we'll see if it's different this time. He is currently developing Like.com on the same technology, but for shopping, which is significantly less interesting and less valuable to me (although may be more lucrative).
