Sony To Disconnect Connect

According to recent reports, Sony will pull the plug on its penurious Connect download store in short order. The service, which was meant to complement its digital music player hardware, never gained any grip with users and has been a money pit since its inception.

Several staffers have already been sent packing, and a few executives have received buyout packages. Although, an official conclusion has not been announced, Sony Connect should be disconnected some time this summer.
