Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Tandberg no more

Published: Wednesday 2010-04-28.

Finally the last Tandberg company has disappeared from the Oslo Stock Exchange. The last one was almost precisely a year ago when Tandberg Data and Tandberg Storage went bankrupt, this time it is Tandberg ASA, known for its video conferencing products, that have been acquired by Cisco. Previously Tandberg Television was also acquired by Ericsson and had their trademark changed, the same thing is probably going to happen with the Cisco-owned videoconference-Tandberg.

But the Tandberg name lives on despite all of this, because from the ashes of Tandberg Data the enterprise is carried on, and even if it is now a privately-owned Germany-based company, there is still a small Norway office left, where a dozen or so people from the “old” Tandberg Data are still left.

Det är ju inte utan vidare att jag kommer att tänka på varumärken som Commodore m.fl. Företag må upphöra, men namnen brukar på något sätt ändå leva vidare.
