As Barnes & Noble continues to shuffle its ranks internally, the future of its Nook e-reader division seems all the more uncertain. Business Insider now reports that the company has laid off much, if not all, of its Nook engineering staff. In a statement sent to BI, a B&N spokesperson confirmed that layoffs were taking place. The news comes little more than a month after longtime Barnes & Noble evangelist and former Nook Media CEO Mike Huseby was tapped for the B&N chief executive position.
