AOL shutting 3 storage services

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

AOL is shutting three data-storage services, including one of the Internet's earliest photo-sharing sites, as it seeks to cut costs and focus resources on its advertising opportunities.

AOL Pictures, the year-old media-sharing site BlueString and the online backup service Xdrive probably will be shut down by year's end, although the company is looking to sell at least Xdrive, which AOL bought in 2005 for an undisclosed fee.
