News Corp Abandons Skiff eReader Device

This is really disappointing.

Although it was mostly for magazines, it was still a very cool device in concept. I would have gotten one just for kicks. And unlike others, I actually liked the larger size. Makes for a fuller read.

Oh well.

News Corp didnt abandon the reader because the hardware wansnt for sale. Hearst was only selling the software platform and have expressed wanting to sell the hardware separately.
