Amazon Lays Off Engineers Behind The Fire Phone

For the first time in eleven years, Amazon is laying off engineers at Lab126. The company is also scaling back on other hardware projects as well.

Amazon's top secret Lab126, the group responsible for Amazon's failed Fire smartphone and other consumer hardware, is facing job cuts. According to the Wall Street Journal, Amazon has retrenched dozens of engineers at Lab126 that worked on the Fire, and killed off or scaled back a number of other hardware projects that were under development.
