Bento has gotten the axe and FileMaker is restructuring. Personally, I had a hard time finding a fit for Bento even in my Apple Users Group meetings. So I am not unhappy about its demise. But the following Apple Insider article implies FileMaker is restructuring to become more profitable, implying FileMaker is not doing well. It is hard to tell if the cut backs are mostly to do with Bento or if it also is impacting FileMaker Pro software. I had heard from someone at FileMaker that some of the Bento people had already been moved over to FileMaker Go and that was their focus, which is fine with me. Anyway, FileMaker only has about 200 employees, so laying off 20 is not a small number for them.
Maybe things will make more sense after Devcon.
