Logitech dumps Revue to $99 amid dire Q2: loses $30m and CEO

Logitech has reported $30m in losses for Q2 2011 [pdf link], further slashed the price of its Revue Google TV box in a desperate grab at an uninterested public, and lost its CEO who has bowed out amid the company's dreary financial showing.
