Reports are coming in from every which way that Sony's Connect music store is soon to be no more. Hamstrung by unwieldy software, proprietary formats, and infighting between Connect and other Sony divisions, Connect was probably doomed from the get-go in its bid to topple (or even distract) iTunes. Engadget reports that interestingly, the eBook business will stay alive in some form to support the relatively successful Sony Reader. Resources (including human resources) are being shifted into the PlayStation group. About 20 employees have been given notice that they will be let go.
