During HP’s quarterly earnings call yesterday, CEO Meg Whitman refuted persistent rumors that her company may be split up into separate businesses. “We have no plans to break up the company,” she told investors. “I feel quite strongly that we are better and stronger together.” The possibility of a breakup again came to the forefront last month when Quartz reported that HP’s board was mulling the idea. AllThingsD quickly rebuffed the rumor, however, and Whitman’s comments seem to back up that dismissal. At least for now, HP seems confident that keeping everyone under one roof is sustainable. Whitman also reiterated HP’s dedication to the PC market, though admitted the company will continue to face struggles ahead. “It’s going to take us…

Nokia has recently made efforts to distinguish its smartphones with advanced photographic capabilities, introducing the PureView 808 with a 41MP rear camera. Now, Nokia’s long-time head of imaging and photography Damian Dinning, who has been with the company since 2004, is confirmed to be departing as of November 30. Dinning was also said to have been instrumental in the development of Windows Phone imaging software, through Nokia’s partnership with Microsoft.
Nokia also recently touted the Lumia 920′s low-light image capture prowess. And indeed, the 920 does take much brighter, better images in low-light situations thanks to optical image stabilization features built into the camera module. Camera quality and features have been promoted by Nokia as key differentiators for its Windows Phone 8 handsets versus competition from Apple and Android hardware OEMs.
Dinning’s background includes roles at Minolta and Eastman Kodak, and Nikon. In September he released a paper detailing Nokia’s plans regarding PureView technology and how it would be employed in the 920. In it, he described improved methods for making the most of the pixels available from that smartphone’s 8 megapixel shooter, rather than trying to cram more megapixels into a small form factor, as Nokia had done with the 808 PureView.
Amateur Photographer reports that Dinning’s departure “came as a blow” to Nokia higher ups, and indeed, losing the man responsible for one of their smartphone’s key features can’t be easy. We’ve reached out to Nokia for additional comment on this shift, and will update this story as needed.Related Posts:
3D systems has filed a lawsuit against both Formlabs and Kickstarter for patent infringement. Formlabs is the manufacturer of a low-cost 3D printer called the Form 1. Thanks to the stereolithography printing technique, the Form 1 can achieve professional grade 3D printing in a small hobbyist printer. It quickly became a Kickstarter success. Yet, in 1997 3D Systems patented stereolithography applications and now wants reparation from Formlabs, and Kickstarter who promoted the printer.
The Kickstarter fundraising campaign topped $ 1.4 million in pre-orders in just under a week, making it one of the notable successes of the platform. Formlabs ultimately raised $ 2,945,885. Kickstarter is financially involved as it takes a 5 percent cut on each campaign, according to the BBC.
Instead of using traditional melting techniques, Formlabs has opted for the “gold standard” in 3D printing — stereolithography, a high-precision positioning system designed to solidify plastics. It allows you to use thin structures in your original 3D model and achieve a level of detail never seen in home 3D printing, especially for $ 2,299.
Similarly priced competitors, such as MakerBots, use a more traditional melting technique that doesn’t lead to the same rendering. On the other end of the spectrum, high-end competitors cost anywhere between $ 10,000 and $ 1 million. The Form 1 was the printer aiming at bridging the gap between those two categories.
But 3D Systems carefully patented stereolithography when it comes to 3D printing. According to the company, its patent portfolio is well-known in the industry, and feigning ignorance won’t be enough to defend the Form 1.
When we initially covered Formlabs’ Kickstarter success, the company claimed that it managed to keep costs low because a few patents had expired. Co-founder Maxim Lobovsky didn’t state which patent exactly, but 3D Systems believes that Formlabs infringed claims 1 and 34 of U.S. Patent No. 5,597,520.
Aside from direct patent infringement, 3D Systems claims that the crowd-funding campaign has caused “immediate and irreparable injury and damage to 3D Systems” by promoting the new printer.
Formlabs and Kickstarter declined to comment.Related Posts:

Google’s stock price has been on a steady rise over the last three months — thanks to that growth, the search, advertising, and mobile giant surpassed Microsoft earlier this morning as the second-most valuable technology company, according to Bloomberg. It’s been a few hours since Google first surpassed Microsoft, and as of this writing both companies have market caps right around $ 248 billion. But given the huge rise in Google’s stock over the last three months while Microsoft’s has been essentially flat, Google should move past Microsoft into sole possession of second place before long (though we can’t make any guarantees where the stock market is concerned).
Over the past few years, Google and Microsoft have been increasingly…
Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has discussed Windows 8 a number of times this year, once describing it as “the rebirth of Microsoft Windows,” but the outspoken chief of Microsoft has switched gears to talk about the company’s upcoming Surface tablet and its future as a devices-and-services company. In an interview with The Seattle Times, Ballmer believes Microsoft has a “very competitive product from the features perspective,” with Microsoft Surface, and that “probably $ 300 to about $ 700 or $ 800″ is the “sweet spot” for pricing.
That’s not to say that the Surface might not debut at a lower price point with a subscription to the company’s Xbox Music service, but Microsoft is clearly looking at generating some profit from its tablet venture….
Question by Zag: I want to go to college to major in robotics to get a job with Sony or a similar company. Where do I go? That’s pretty much it up there. I saw a video for the Sony QRIO. Fell in love with the robot and want to have something to do with making things like that. I want to know the top notch schools and some good public schools. Im looking primarily in the US and Japan.

Brad Pelo is suddenly in charge of a major Nintendo initiative for the Japanese company’s next big console, the Wii U, despite not being an employee at Nintendo. Instead, Pelo is CEO of i.TV — a “social television and second screen technology company” that’s worked with everyone from Entertainment Weekly to Engadget parent company AOL — and he’s the man responsible for Nintendo TVii.
At least he’s the man responsible for the company providing the software behind Nintendo TVii (the guy behind the guy, if you will). And his company brings more to the bargaining table than just software — existing relationships with cable providers and TiVO in the US bolster what i.TV offers Nintendo in a major way. “For Nintendo TVii, there is a mutual benefit in existing relationships we have. Like TiVO for example — we were the first to bring TiVO to the mobile platform. There’s also the benefit of tests that we have done over the years with the cable companies, based on components of our platform,” Pelo told Engadget.
But how did this all come about? He said it wasn’t long after Nintendo’s original Wii U E3 reveal. “The genesis of the experience you’re seeing here was really when the Wii U was announced, and it was clear that this is the ideal second screen,” Pelo explained. “Ideal,” in Pelo’s eyes, means a closed system with a “dedicated second screen.” In so many words, while he acknowledges that tablets offered by other manufacturers are technically superior, they don’t offer the same whole-system approach that Nintendo’s Wii U is offering. “You might not think of it as the ideal hardware compared to an iPad if I really had a dedicated second screen. But it is in the living room, and it’s persistent. It doesn’t even really work outside of the living room — it’s attached to the main viewing service in the home,” he explained, referencing the Wii U’s tablet-style controller.
