AOL is shutting down The Unofficial Apple Weblog or TUAW, as part of its ever-growing cost cutting measures. TUAW was founded in 2004 and was part of Weblogs – a company purchased by AOL in 2005. This news comes hot on the heels of the news that AOL’s gaming blog, Joystiq, would also be shut down.

According to The Verge, TUAW will be shuttered on February 2nd. The closure is unsurprising, as AOL is actively trying to shrink the amount of online properties it manages – CEO Tim Armstrong said in November that his plan was to “simplify everything that can be simplified.”

Instead of selling the site, TUAW is simply being shut down and its employees made redundant, with the possibility of it being brought back in the future.
