Looks like Google will be laying off employees assigned to their radio automation business, according to Web Guild. The soon to be laid off employees should number about 100.

"The layoffs will primarily be related to employees working directly on the product as well as extend support for the product. Google Radio has software and hardware components," Web Guild reported.
