Olympus announces portable DAP production halt

Evan Blass
m:robe 500i

Grab your tissues, folks, 'cause it's a sad day for the legions of Olympus MP3 player fans worldwide. (Pause. Wait for laughter. Continue.) So we may have exaggerated that whole "legions of fans" thing a bit, but we're pretty sure that a few people will be upset to learn that Olympus has announced it will halt production of portable DAPs, along with shifting production focus away from compact digital cameras and towards digital SLRs. The only good news here is that our m:robe, which gets mocked everywhere we go, will soon become a collector's item that we can unload for profit on eBay.
