    Bingo! That's why I don't see that much value, even with $1.5b current sales. What business wants to be stuck with a single supplier?

    What'S this "facts only" thing?
    Google anything you want to know about Kodak and its management.

    Google!?
    Is it so that you might believe Google to be truth and gospel, a first stop to garner facts, especially from a complex quagmire that is Kodak? Or anything? That's a very dangerous route to take. You could try talking directly with people at the top of Kodak, but given the mire they are in I doubt they are amenable to sweet-talking the public with factual reassurances.

    You guys are really funny, trying to counter-attack at all cost, about anything.

    Look at what Kodak has become. Now what do you want from me exactly? Like if the abrupt E6 termination wasn't enough you are asking for more?

    I said it and I'll say it again: I don't trust kodak. Too many fine products gone, too many management errors. Now what?

    What makes the E-6 termination abrupt? The fact that we didn't know they were discontinuing the film before they discontinued the film? IIRC, the Kodak announcement said in March that there was 6 months of stock remaining. Now, look at Adorama's site. They still have E100VS in 135 and 120, and E100G in 120 and 8x10. Kodak knew what sales figures were, and they calculated their discontinuation notices accordingly so that photographers who use that stock have the time to either stock up or test a new stock.

    Would you rather have Fuji's discontinuation process? From my experience, it goes a little like this: Photographer: "Hey, this film is out of stock" Fuji: "Oh, yeah, that's been discontinued permanently" At least Kodak gives us some sort of warning.

    Really it is you that is slightly amusing sometimes. Googling something has somehow become synonymous with "truth." Never mind that the majority of what you read on the internet is unconfirmed rumor. People still suck it up like it is a fact.

    No, I was wrong. Now that I think a little more about it, it really isn't amusing at all. Instead it is a little sad and more than a little disturbing. We have become so accustomed to seeing a steady flow of words on the internet that we have reached the point that many, many people take it for fact. Instead of requiring confirmation we now accept someone else's rumor as being "truth."

    Are you guys serious? Or are you guys really, really, really wanting me to trust that company?

    I don't get this argumentation.

    Exactly what do you not trust? If they are losing money on a product line, you do not trust that they will shut it down? If they are making money on a product line, you do not trust that they will keep it running? When Kodak shut down Kodachrome, HIE, and Ektachrome there was at least six months supply available, did you miss the announcement and therefore do not trust Kodak?

    If you think that you can run Kodak better than it is run now, how about sending your resume to them?

    Well, you surely know-it-all, eh? Why don't you run kodak? Maybe are you too busy making millions elsewhere?

    Me, as a simple consumer, I don't trust that company anymore. Please don't lose too much energy and smartassness trying to prove me that it's a fine company and all that stuff. My mind set.

    I don't think they are asking you to trust Kodak. I think they are asking you to not trust everything you might read on the Intenet about Kodak.

    Very good advice, that. Always remember, the Internet is not a peer-reviewed resource.

    CNN reported on Firday that Fox will stop distubting film by the end of 2013, the other studios are expected to follow. Wounder how this will impact Kodak?
