No More Be Hardware -- Industry darling Be, Inc. announced last week it will stop making its own hardware line - the BeBox - and focus purely on developing the BeOS for PowerPC-based Macintosh computers. Be points out (rightly) that it's difficult for a 50-person company to design hardware and an operating system, and the lion's share of their target user and developer markets are already using Power Mac hardware. Be promises to support current BeBoxes for at least the next three years. [GD]
