    Hah, Apple would give us one film to replace colour and B&W, "duotone". Google would give us film that secretly uploads a digital copy to them

    44 pages and counting. Are you following all this Mr Lebens? It started with a kiss, I never thought it would come to this.

    On the contrary it looks like they're still trying to figure out ways to make film relevant for archival purposes.

    Here's a lovely news item: Kodak Releases More Film Stock for Archiving and Preservation. Music to my ears! Here's the info page for the new film, Vision3.

    Combined with that new film information iOS app, it looks like Kodak is making a concerted effort to fool us into believing it's film business will continue.

    Well, it seems we finally know who's "running" Kodak in these times and who is behind products being discontinued...

    http://www.schmalfilm-online.de/news...+8+massiv/1311

    This article quotes insiders saying discontinuing Ektachrome 100D was a decision of financial controllers and NOT of Kodak itself(!). The same guys are telling Kodak to raise prices of Super8 negative films by 15% and DOUBLE the price of Tri-X in Super8. It really seems like they're killing off the slow(er) moving products and only keep those which sell quickly so they don't sit on a load of inventory which only sells off slowly... Draw your own conclusions - I'm just saying that IF Kodak were in a financiall ybetter situation we wouldn't have seen all of the products go we had to part with in the last months...

    From time to time it has been mentioned that Kodak has as its burden an old power plant to drive the industrial area. Well, it seems that Kodak has been able to transform that burden to money and at the same time keep the wheels turning: http://www.rbj.net/article.asp?aID=193484

    It's good that they unloaded that dinosaur, but 10 million is nothing to Kodak's financial problems.

    Haven't you heard about "clean coal technology", Sal? - thought you'd need a good holiday laugh ...
    I still haven't figured out what that means either.

    Kodak had huge scrubbers on their stacks. I guess this is clean coal technology. And, they had 2 plants, one at KP ant the other at KPW.
