Reducing security risks from open source software

Eastman Kodak and Seagate are joining forces to create improved APS-camera-to-computer technology bridges. The alliance covers marketing, manufacturing and sales, and the two companies will work to develop the next generation of film drives. Under the terms of the deal, Seagate gets exclusive manufacture and sales rights for Advantix film drives,which will sold as either as in-bay products or external peripherals. Stephen Luczo, president and CEO at Seagate, commented: "Our strategic focus is on delivering products and technology that enable people to get information the way they want it. That information could be in the form of a picture or a thousand words - as long as it is how they want it." Kodak is already marketing two drive models and software that scan in the negatives from the film cartridges, and upload the images into a PC. Users can then manipulate the images, for example eliminating red-eye, correct colour, as well as specify any of the three APS print formats. &Reg;
