Gateway keeps playing games as it tries to return to profitability, the manufacturer announced this week it will cut down efforts on pushing its consumer electronics products and will focus again on its PC manufacturing business.

"The electronics maker, which acquired eMachines in March, is looking to be back in the black by 2005. To that end, it is focusing on cutting operating costs and creating computer products that it can sell in mass quantities. In recent months, the company closed its chain of retail stores and announced plans to cut its staff to 2,000, resulting in thousands of layoffs. Now it's looking at its product lines."
