Bloomberg: Apple Airport Team Disbanded »

Mark Gurman:

Apple Inc. has disbanded its division that develops wireless routers, another move to try to sharpen the company’s focus on consumer products that generate the bulk of its revenue, according to people familiar with the matter.

Apple began shutting down the wireless router team over the past year, dispersing engineers to other product development groups, including the one handling the Apple TV, said the people, who asked not to be named because the decision hasn’t been publicly announced.

At this point, the Airport products are still for sale, but if they go away, I think I’d be mostly okay with it. It’s hard to beat Airports are far as simplicity of setup, but they are expensive and are out-performed by many other products.
