Jony Ive is auctioning a bright red Mac Pro for charity
Apple’s new Mac Pro may not be released just yet, but Jony Ive and fellow designer Marc Newson have already created an alternate model of the upcoming machine as the latest entry in their high-end charity auction for Red at Sotheby’s. The one-of-a-kind Mac Pro appears to be structurally identical to its standard black, aluminum shape, but as with many products sold for the Red charity, it’s been coated in a bright, candy-apple color that makes it look all the more appealing. 

The trash can gets a lipstick-colored tint. Side note: If Jony Ive is gonna design stuff for charity, make more cameras. Please.

Japanese electronics giant Olympus Corp to lay off thousands

  • 2,500 jobs cut to offset recent financial setbacks source

» The layoffs follow a recent settlement between Olympus and former-CEO Michael Woodford, who sued the company for unfair-dismissal following his firing in October 2011. Woodford is responsible for unearthing massive investor losses by the company, $1.5 billion to be exact, and is expected to receive just over $15 million after settling the matter out of court. According to local media, Olympus plans to cut most of the 2,500 jobs from its camera-making division.

Speaking of fairly innovative things, the Lytro — launched in full today after a tease a few months back that got people excited — just turned the idea of a camera totally on its head. Those long, rectangular things? That’s the camera. No need to put it up to your eye, because, being a light-field camera, it can focus the shot after the fact. And the price point? A fairly cheap $399. That’s what we call radical reinvention, friends. Is this company the Kodak of the 21st century, or something else? We’re totally curious.

Once-powerful Kodak now raising money by patent trolling

  • $1 billion — the amount Kodak wants to shake out of RIM & Apple source

» Wait wait, how sad is this? Kodak, one of the great companies of the 20th century — and probably the one most deserving of a Paul Simon tune — has been relegated to patent troll status. Kodak claims that they hold the patent to an image-preview feature commonly used in cameraphones. The company has lost half of its market value in the past year.
