Update: TechCrunch, which is also owned by AOL, reports that both Joystiq and TUAW will be integrated into Engadget. The gaming site’s content will be part of a separate channel while TUAW’s coverage will be folded into the larger site. Whether the brand names will remain isn’t clear but should be revealed later today.
Original story follows…
TUAW currently has a staff of 11. It’s understood that AOL has no plans to sell the TUAW brand, which means it could use it in the future. Regardless of what it chooses to do, it’s sad news that a talented team of writers and editors is now out of work.
