Where have all the printers gone?

I write the news section of Pivotal Resources’ “Directions” inkjet patent review publication. I just completed the March-April edition. If this hardly seems like news, bear in mind that it is meant to reflect the industry news at the time that the patents issued. The patents can’t be viewed and reviewed in real time, so to speak, so everything is a couple of months in arrears.

Is Memjet for real?

I have been asked this question many times in the three years since Memjet founder Kia Silverbrook announced the technology and plans to introduce a product before the end of 2007. Demonstration units made it seem at the time that a product was indeed imminent, but promises of products in 2007, 2008 and 2009 have not been met. Some have even suggested that the announcement was a hoax.
