A PDA MAKER IS SIGNING OFF

Despite all the hype, the personal digital assistant (PDA) market continues to run into static. Sales have been slow to take off, and now the pioneer PDA maker has bitten the dust: AT&T said that EO, in which it holds a 52% stake, would cease operations on July 29, three years after it was founded. AT&T decided to pull the plug on the privately held company after two personal communicators proved to be too costly and ungainly to sell well.EDITED BY THANE PETERSON
