Pinnacle Micro Inc., which makes disk drives for personal computers and other products, is planning an initial public stock offering that it hopes will raise at least $15.8 million. The company, based in Irvine, plans to sell 1.8 million shares at $10 to $12 apiece, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The company plans to use proceeds from the sale to pay corporate dividends, to reduce debt and for general corporate purposes.

Internet retailer Buy.com plans to go public -- again. And founder Scott A. Blum, who took the company public in 2000 and bought it back at fire-sale prices in 2001, is poised to collect millions -- again. During the first go-around, Buy.com's stock briefly doubled in value before collapsing. Blum bought out investors for 17 cents a share, a tiny fraction of the initial offering price of $13.

Monitors fill video walls, and digital screens display virtual artwork inside wooden frames.
