Xerox ColorCube -
I prefer not to get into the hardware vs hardware debate, after all, all copiers are the same.
But this "wrinkle" in the continuum is worth mentioning.
The Xerox ColorCube is not a contender, it is a game changer - and I haven't even seen a unit yet.
It doesn't matter.
Xerox could release a monkey in a crate with a box of crayons, and somebody, somewhere would buy it.
But this is not the case - there's no monkey in the Cube.
Let us not forget the end user really won't care what the technology is - like always, they will want to print or copy in color or B/W as easily and as simply as possible, at a reasonable cost.
The only folks calling this a "big" issue are those inside the industry.
The strong point that Xerox puts forth here with ColorCube is variety of product - just look at the finishing capabilities.
Even though today there are only 3 units with multiple flavors, one need not stress when considering the Xerox product line, next year or the next decade.
This is just another change, iteration, evolution all expected and predictable as we head down the path towards total color output - just like the days of B/W TV were numbered, so to are B/W prints.
For that matter, so too, are the days of print in general.
