Dell has been bitten by the consumer electronics bug again. It has acquired Mountain View, Calif.-based Zing, a company started by Tim Bucher, a former Apple employee. Terms of the deal were not announced.
Bucher sold his previous company Mirra to Seagate for an undisclosed amount after hitting a rough patch. Zing is primarily a software-focused company, that partners with hardware makers like Sandisk. Dell has a dismal record when it comes to consumer electronics, and the Zing acquisition won’t change that anytime soon.
