    Frenemies: Apple And Google Reportedly Join Forces For $500M+ Bid On Kodak’s 1,100 Patents

    Sometimes self-interest can make for some unlikely friendships. According to Bloomberg, Apple and Google have finally teamed up to buy Kodak’s portfolio of patents out of bankruptcy for an estimated $500 million.

    Kodak Wants To Sell Film Business, Focus On Printers

    Soon, Kodak will cease to be a film company. After spending almost a decade swirling the pot and the past eight months going directly down the drain, Kodak has decided to sell its traditional film businesses (and some other camera businesses) to fully become a commercial-focused businesses, with printers at center stage.

    Kodak Shutters Digital Camera Business In Favor Of Licensing, Photo Printing

    Consider today the end of an era for one of the most iconic brands in the imaging industry. While their bankruptcy protection filing from last month signaled the need for some drastic action, it’s still a bit of a shock to see Kodak announce that they are putting all of their digital cameras, camcorders, and picture frames out to pasture. When all is said and done, Kodak expects… Read More

    Kodak Reportedly Preparing For Bankruptcy Auction Of Patents

    Poor Kodak. At this point, they’re just along for the ride. The last few years have been rough on them, and they’ve made a few big decisions that haven’t panned out. I must admit that while my unsolicited advice to them was sound, it probably would have to have been put in place a decade ago for them to have avoided the current state of things. As it is, the WSJ has word… Read More

    Short On Cash, Kodak Sells Its Sensor Business

    Kodak, which has been struggling to make enough money to keep the lights on next year, has sold its image sensor business. The buyer is holdings firm Platinum Equity, which is also picking up a large R&D and manufacturing facility in Rochester.

    Kodak: It’s Time To Go Invisible

    Kodak, let us admit, is doomed. Founded over a century ago, it has dominated film for as long as film has existed, but now that film is on the verge of ceasing to exist, they have very little to dominate. They’re short on cash and while they deny plans to file for bankruptcy, many question whether they will have the luxury of choice a few years from now. My first preference for the… Read More

    In The Era Of The Connected Camera, The Point & Shoot Commits Seppuku

    The big brand camera companies are committing seppuku in front of our eyes. It’s fascinating. Last week, I bought a brand new Canon S95 camera. It’s a great point & shoot. Maybe the best out there right now. It captures beautiful 10-megapixel images. It’s great in low-light. It’s fast. And it shoots HD video. I anticipate I’ll take about 5 percent of my… Read More

  • Back To School: Printers


    Your goal in school is to use your own printer as little as possible. Most schools have their own black and white printers on call 24/7 but sometimes you may need to print out a few snapshots for friends or a nice color cover for your last-minute essay on fish farming in ancient Mesopotamia as it relates to Shakespeare’s plays. My goal with creating this guide is to offer you a few… Read More
