AirClic, Motorola to form wireless-technology company

Published on .

Holtsville, N.Y.--Wireless e-commerce company AirClic Inc. has found a sugar-daddy. The company will team with technology giant Motorola Inc., Symbol Technologies Inc. and Connect Things Inc. to create a new company that will let people use their cell phones or PDAs to scan bar codes from print pages and connect instantly to Web sites. The companies will invest $500 million in the new, yet-to-be-named company. AirClic developed the core technology that makes the print-to-Web link work, and is testing it this summer in a trial with Wired magazine. With Motorola, it has found a wireless giant to turn its technology into a mass-produced product. AirClic competitors Digital Convergence and DigiMarc are running trials of similar print-to-Web technologies this summer.
