Stuffit Wireless, Purchase by Smith Micro SystemsStuffit Wireless, Purchase by Smith Micro Systems
Smith Micro Software have just announced their acquisition Of Allume (press release), makers of the long running Stuffit compression software, most noticable for their recent, lossless, JPEG-recompression technique. The new owners have already announced the expansion of this technique to new file formats; "... for other media file types such as MPEG movies and MP3 audio files." and to the wireless world. I look forward to being able to pack JPEGs from my old digital camera, using my PocketPC, before emailing them through my incredibly expensive GPRS service.
