Meridian Sooloos
In tough economic times, it's not unusual to see consolidation among companies as big fish gobble up smaller ones. We didn't really see Meridian's acquisition of Sooloos in our crystal ball, but there's some definite synergy going on here; with Meridian's adoption of SpeakerLink for ethernet distribution of control and data and Sooloos' 17-inch Control:One touchscreen, there's some interesting possibilities. One thing's for sure, the two companies are targeting the same affluent, tech-lifestyle crowd; but we're all left to speculate. Meridian didn't disclose any immediate plans, let alone terms of the deal -- we're guessing some number of $3000 F80s was involved.
