Rumor Has It, Ep. 14: Let's give Kodak an Internet hug (podcast)

We're baaaa-aaack! And slap-happy after the break. We ask: who will make the next Kindle? Will Apple have some sort of snorefest in NYC? Why do we miss Kodak already? Are Acer and Lenovo Wintel-crazed? And are RIM's co-chairmen getting the boot?

Selflessness is a virtue, Kodak. We may not be able to keep you in business, but we appreciate you. Some eCards

We're baaaa-aaack!

And slap-happy after the break, so you may want to sit down to watch this show.

On the first Rumor Has It of 2012, we ask: who will make the next Kindle? Will Apple have some sort of snorefest in NYC? Are Acer and Lenovo Wintel-crazed? And are RIM's co-chairmen getting the boot?

But mostly, we pour one out for Kodak, which is suffering lately. Rumors out of Taiwan suggest it's going to make even fewer cameras next year, as it can no longer keep pace with Canon, Sony, and Nikon. Poor little Kodak: it invented digital cameras and thereby made film obsolete. We wanted to thank the company for sacrificing its own profits for the greater good of innovation (intentionally or not), so we made it this Some eCard.

Oh, and don't forget: next week, Rumor Has It is coming to you live from the CES 2012 CNET main stage on a very special day and time, Friday, January 13, at noon PT. So there won't be a show on Tuesday next week, but tune in next Friday for Humiliation Day live from CES! We can't wait!
