Zink makes news from CES 2008
Zink, the company with the "inkless" printers that I began following starting with their Demo2007 appearance nearly a year ago, made a splash at CES this week, announcing their partnership with Polaroid, among others. The Polaroid connection (actually an ongoing one that goes back to the roots of the Zink technology) resulted in a rarity of sorts for the printer industry -- news coverage in the general and business press. For example, AP has a story that was picked up by CNN (see "Polaroid Back To Its Roots With Tiny Printer".) The company also announced partnerships with Alps, Foxconn, and TOMY.
