    No disagreement with that.

    I was just commenting on BetterSense's prodigious powers of prognostication. And I loved his phrase, "I hate 3D with the burning passion of a thousand suns," remembering it when I read the article last night on the recent market demise of 3D motion pictures. Several others had also expressed a similar sentiment - albeit not quite so poetically.

    That's all...

    And my point was that even with the rapid decline in 3D, the traditional MP market has not rebounded significantly. The economy has a lot to do with it though.

    Again, no disagreements. I was just amazed by the 'Bambino' moment of accurately calling that particular shot seven months in advance...

    Ken;

    No argument. Kodak is being wounded by a thousand cuts. This is just one more, but quite serious blow. Even if 3D vanished today, the inroads of digital MP conversion have taken place. The 3D fad came and went in the 50s with a whole slew of methods and pictures. And the gimmicks were the same then to wow the audience. And, it is due to fade again and come back again, but with 3D TV here, there may be a change that is hidden below the surface. I see quite a few people buying those, and there are more and more 3D DVDs out there.
