Oyster is shutting down...

Stashed in: Kindle!

To save this post, select a stash from drop-down menu or type in a new one:

I kept thinking I ought to check out this service - and now it is too late... Amazon has a subscription, true, but now I will never know what I had been missing. "As we continue on, we couldn’t be more excited about the future of ebooks and mobile reading. We believe more than ever that the phone will be the primary reading device globally over the next decade—enabling access to knowledge and stories for billions of people worldwide. Looking forward, we feel this is best seized by taking on new opportunities to fully realize our vision for ebooks.

With that, we will be taking steps to sunset the existing Oyster service over the next several months."

I wonder why they are shutting down. Business model not viable? Not enough customers?
