Link: Who's Watching? 3D TV Is No Hit With Viewers
"Phil Orlins knows everything about producing TV in three dimensions. The ESPN (NYSE:DIS) producer has captured the undulating greens of Augusta National and the flying motor bikes of the X-Games for ESPN's 3D channel. But he can only guess how well his shows resonate with viewers. That's because 3D audiences are so small they can't be measured by Nielsen's rating system."

"Barnes & Noble (NYSE:BKS) has dropped the price of its back-lit Nook e-reader to $119 from $139 at several retailers to prepare for Amazon's (NASDAQ:AMZN) upcoming Kindle Paperwhite, which also retails for $119.

"The Nook Simple Touch with 'GlowLight' technology launched in April and received beaming praise from critics. But Amazon is poised to challenge Barnes & Noble with the Kindle Paperwhite, which looks like it will blow away previous Kindle e-readers with a higher resolution screen and adjustable lighting."

Link: HP's New ElitePad Business Tablet Is All About the Accessories
"If nothing else, Windows 8 (NASDAQ:MSFT) is spurring some creativity in tablet design, even for business users. Hewlett-Packard's (NYSE:HPQ) new ElitePad 900, for example, offers an innovative expansion strategy and other accessories to try to position it as a primary business computer. One big question: How much will it all cost?

"I got a chance to play with the new ElitePad at a recent HP launch event in San Francisco, and I was intrigued by the sleek device and accessories designed to turn the tablet into a primary computing device. I instinctively support any attempt to expand computer and mobile-device options, and my initial impression is that this felt like a truly new approach that could add real value."

"As part of its bankruptcy reorganization, Eastman Kodak (PINK:EKDKQ) is planning to wind down sales of consumer inkjet printers next year, products that were once called a crucial part of its turnaround effort.

"The company's announcement, which was made on Friday, said Kodak would focus instead on selling packaging, printing and other services to businesses. Kodak will continue to sell ink for consumer printers and said it expected to "significantly improve cash flow" in the United States in the first half of 2013."
