    Fred;

    Fisher chose Carp and Carp chose Perez. Like begets like.

    Also it is interesting to remember how unimaginative Fisher was when it came to cell phones in spite of him being from Motorola. Maybe he wanted to avoid impinging on Motorola's turf?

    Interestingly enough, both Fuji and Konica closed their US plants and no longer manufactured products here. In fact, the entire Fuji plant was up for auction having been build but really never used. They seemed to have some sense of what was coming. Our EK management apparently did not.

    Carp are not averse to bottom feeding.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I still have 6 boxes of Kodak Christmas Lights in my garage.

    Yes, Perez was hired to improve the health of the company, not to wind it down. He is an utter failure. Yet he is still there. That's just SO encouraging.

    Sometime around 1980 when I was working in the Research Labs setting up a battery lab, the group I worked with also contained people working on coatable solar cells; I've forgotten what happened to them. Maybe PE remembers.

    The Kodak Sales store at Kodak Park used to be a photographer's paradise. Film, paper, chemicals, and other supplies everywhere. Last time I was there it was Christmas Lights, Teddy Bears, T-Shirts and etc, all with "KODAK" in them somewhere.

    You cannot square something and come up with a negative number!


    EDIT: Hmmm, I wonder if it is an imaginary number!

    When the President and the CFO step down, that is a damning indictment of the CEO. I cannot see how it could be taken any other way.

    Well, the President was a Co-President (and Co-COO), so they still have a President and COO.
    No doubt, the Co-COO setup was Coo-Coo.
