ACI US Changes Name to 4D -- ACI US, the publishers and distributors of the 4th Dimension database environment and product line, have changed the company name to 4D, Inc. The renaming is intended to let the company better leverage recognition of their flagship product and make it easier for people to find information on the Internet - although you'd think folks sufficiently technical to do database development would realize a company name and a product name don't have to be the same. 4D, Inc., remains a wholly owned subsidiary of its French parent company, 4D SA, and also owns StarNine Technologies, which it acquired one month ago.
