Microsoft kills Courier project

Microsoft's long-rumored "Courier" project -- a bifurcated e-reader of sorts that gained a great deal of curiosity despite never being officially announced or acknowledged, apparently has been killed. Reports Gizmodo:

We're told that on Wednesday, Microsoft execs informed the internal team that had been working on the tablet device that the project would no longer be supported.

Of course, we've heard this tune before. Project Pink reportedly was dead, and we now know it as the Kin. So, we'll hold out hope. But just a little. [Gizmodo]
