Photo giant Eastman Kodak Co. on Wednesday (Jan. 9) said it would form a new
company to develop products based on its research into more efficient
wireless transmission of high-quality video, photographs and data.
The spin-off, Appairent Technologies Inc., will use patented wireless
technologies from Kodak's research and development labs, and is part of the
company's goal of commercializing its technologies to expand the
info-imaging category - a $225 billion industry based on the convergence of
images and information technology.
Ok, so that's interesting. Here we are talking about convergence in
devices. Of course, we also get PR blurbs spouting patent foolishness
