3COM kills off Audrey appliance

Author: JT Smith

From a reader: CNET
reports
that 3COM is killing its Audrey Web-surfing product citing poor demand and a need
to
cut costs. "While we believe in the potential of the category, it's
clear that it will take longer to develop than originally planned and
likely to generate losses for the foreseeable future," 3Com Chief
Executive Bruce Claflin said in a conference call. The reader says, "Hopefully they
sell
the product line to someone like Handspring or Palm. It's a great idea
for a V1 product."
