Author: JT Smith
CNET News.com reports that Gateway has officially killed off its Connected Touch Pad appliance. The Linux-powered device, developed in partnership with America Online was unveiled last November with a $599 price tage. Experts had written off the product as dead back in March when Gateway restructured its top management and announced that it was putting all of its Internet appliance plans on hold.
