I love the fact that Sony is pushing hard to ensure their PS3 will succeed but in doing so, there is some need to stop the bleeding. Part of this is to lean up on products and offerings that are not doing much for the bottom line. Thankfully Sony is going to keep the Sony Connect e-reader division up and running and thus keep the Reader alive but it does trouble me to hear how close the reader is to being a defunct product. Well…actually it may already be one, but damn if I do not love using it! On the upside Sony is committed to supporting Adobe’s Digital Editions software in it’s line of e-readers so hopefully I will see a firmware update from this announcement.
