The cow company is willing to try anything, but their current plans have consistently addressed the emerging digital TV market. Last year it was plasma screens and this year the company has announced plans to sell digital projectors. This time out, however, the projectors are aimed at the education and small business markets. Gateway is reselling two projects from an unnamed supplier, the 205 SVGA and the 210 XGA. the projectors are lightweight, portable models. We are willing to be that the company will follow up with projectors for the home.
Gateway has also announced another restructuring and the company has reduced its staff by 1,900 and plans to close approximately 20 more retail stores.
