Name of the Week
But this morning's news of an acquisition by mobile phone multimedia systems vendor PacketVideo Corp. had us checking the calendar –- was it April Fool's Day already?
Because announcing the takeover of a company called TwonkyVision has got to be a joke, right?
Apparently not. The TwonkyVision team is based in Berlin, and has been "driving innovation in the connected media area since its inception and has developed proven, high-performance universal plug-and-play (UpnP) audio-video middleware," including a software development kit called TwonkyMedia.
And before you ask, the CEO is, unfortunately, not called Mrs. Twonky -- it's Angela Scheller, PhD.
