A picture might be worth a thousand words, but wearable-camera maker GoPro wants to ensure those stories get told. That's why, after a bumpy year, CEO Nick Woodman is emphasizing software. His San Mateo, California, company has recently introduced or improved several products to help customers edit videos on the fly, store them in the cloud, and, of course, make them in the first place. "GoPro got started in the packaging," says IFI analyst Larry Cady. "But now they've started patenting around more of the electronics, like image processing and network communications." --Victoria Finkle
