Some "analog" Kodak news:

Kodak and Samsung Announce Strategic Alliance in Consumer Inkjet Printing

"....Samsung will sell Samsung all-in-one inkjet printers using Kodak's printer and proprietary ink technology."

Samsung is doing pretty good for itself lately and Kodak getting the ink part of the distribution is nice!

PE are those folks that do ink R&D the same folks that work on say dyes and other aspects in film (ie the Ektar engineers, etc.)? Obviously any growth is good for your community, but does this help film in any regard?

Some are the same people and some are new to EK.

There is recent Kodak news floating around here and on the news. Kodak still lost a lot of $$.

They never learned that people do not want printers?

It is not their home printer business that their energies are/were most focussed on - it is their commercial graphics business (CREO).

And so am I... my guess is you have never read anything, AT ALL, from Marx.

Interesting though is that the Kodak site has changed a few times recently. This whole "Why Film Matters" campaign is interesting. Lots of directors seem to be unwilling to switch over.

Funny but there's not been anything I'm aware of anywhere to confirm the OP's report, aside from a Kodak munchkin speaking(OTR?) at a meeting.

CGW, you are right. I don't know where the information originated, and there hasn't been anything to verify what the OP wrote. There's no source other than the OP. AFAIK, the OP never made another post to this thread.

In today's political parlance, "marxist" is just a general term for "something I find scary." For instance, I had to work on a book where it was claimed that President Obama was both a "marxist" and a "crony capitalist," more or less simultaneously. And, in addition, a puppet of the (very not-marxist) Bilderberg group.

In the future, we will all be marxist for 15 minutes.

Might be best if the Mods close it given recent OT chatter. Surely we'll all hear about it if there really is any substance to what this Kodak rep reportedly said.

Yes, saying what? Why are you keeping us in suspense?

Maybe they've acquiesced and are restarting Kodachrome production based on this new, revolutionary, technology discussed in the OP. Will there be Kodachrome for those Instamatics I found?
