Just as we had speculated several weeks ago, Eye-Fi is beginning to announce partnerships surrounding their new wireless media card technology. At CES they announced an agreement with Lexar Media to introduce a wireless memory card based on Eye-Fi’s patent-pending technology.

Supply Chain News: Dell/Wal-Mart Deal Means Supply Chain Changes
May 31, 2007

Dell/Wal-Mart Deal Means Supply Chain Changes To compete in retail, Dell will need to substantially transform supply chain processes, as it moves from a make-to-order model to a make-to-stock one. We can assume Dell will adopt “pull-based” strategies within this new make-to-stock model to minimize inventories and maximize responsiveness, and indeed the consumer electronics industry as a whole has made great strides in managing both these issues in recent years. But regardless, Dell will now have to build a third supply chain to add to its existing ones for make-to-order computers and service parts. Source: Supply Chain Digest. Read full story.

CES Digital Imaging Menu
February 1, 2005

Far more intriguing than any of the wireless, roving vacuum cleaners and robotic dogs is the evidence of more than a few imaging innovations at this year's show. Much more prominent than in past years, digital imaging continues to gain both floor space and general attention at CES. While digital cameras continue to dominate the news here, much of what was shown at CES was done so "under the table" as most of the major camera manufacturers save the big announcements for next month's Photo Marketing Association (PMA) show. And while they may take the forefront, digital cameras are not the only products making
