    A PAPARAZZO has been fatally struck by a car after taking photos of Justin Bieber's white Ferrari on a Los Angeles street.

    LA police Officer James Stoughton says the photographer, who was not identified, died at a hospital shortly after the crash on Tuesday evening.

    Stoughton says Bieber was not in the Ferrari at the time.

    http://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/...-1-100-patents

    BANKRUPT IMAGING OUTFIT Kodak has received a bid of more than $500m for 1,100 of its patents.

    Kodak, which is languishing in bankruptcy court after years of falling behind its rivals, has been trying to sell 1,100 patents that relate to digital imaging for over 18 months. Now the firm has received a bid of more than $500m from a consortium for its patents.

    Kodak had claimed its patents would be worth billions but until now had only received bids around the $250m mark. The firm needs to sell part of its patent portfolio in order to secure loans offered on the premise that its patents can be sold for $500m or more.

    While Kodak is trying to sell its patents to generate cash, the firm has been slashing costs by cutting staff and concentrating on high margin businesses. The firm claims it will rake in $2.7bn in 2013 with what is left of the business.

    Kodak might have only half-heartedly got into the digital imaging business due to over-reliance on film sales, but the firm did considerable research and development in that field. That the firm couldn't even monetise its patents is a strong indication of how short-sighted the company was about realising the value of digital imaging. ยต

    A new iOS app is available for those who use Apple devices. Marksta allows you to add a watermark to your photos via your iPhone or iPad, then you can share them on the social networks or even to AP using Tapatalk or Forumrunner.

    Just search for Marksta in the Appstore

    Nikon patents a semi transparent LCD screen. The idea being that you can flip it up and see the LCD screen with the real view visible through the LCD. Interesting idea, especially for composing your shots
