    Nobody prints their pictures because they don't want to keep buying expensive toner cartridges. Therefor, unlike our generation, in 50 years nobody will be able to pull open their grandparents drawer at their estate liquidation, and see all those old pictures of them when they were young. Fact is, if you are taking pictures with digital cameras and not printing, then you DON'T HAVE any pictures.

    That's the essence of virtualization in a nutshell. It's more convenient because there's none of those pesky real things to have to deal with...

    "There is very limited audience for the arty stuff, and it is largely comprised of other arty types, most of whom have no money to spend because no one is buying their stuff either. More people bring their emotions to an image than bring their intellect. The former are the folks who have checkbooks because they are engineers, accountants, and bankers—and generally they are engineers, accountants and bankers because they are not artists."

    I still have my Swinger, and it still says YES. Just need to run down to the drugstore and buy some film.

    I take the dissent opinion here. I've seen many folks creating books using print on demand services ( ie Blurb, Apple, etc.) plus there is a large contingent of scrapbook types who upload their images to a site,
    put the background trmplate in place and print- comes in the mail....

    Folks print, just not the same way

    Kodak missed this opportunity. Like PE says, they shoulda bought up Facebook, Instagram, etc., or better yet, set up a culture that would have created the next Facebook, Flickr, etc.....

    That wasn't there "then", way before Perez too folks...

    I found an article, will have to find it, but basically the writer said, Kodak should have spun off some segments to take the ball and run - say out in WA or Silicon Valley back in the day (70's/80's).....instead all that intel was kept at NY....and not capitalized on....

    Should they have bought up Facebook at the 38.00 IPO, or the 26.00 it is now, or the 25 cents it will be worth when it finally becomes the new Myspace? Kodak would do better as a tobacco company.

    If they had a culture that could have say acquired FB in the early 2000's or have created a FB/Instagram like environment....we'd be in a different boat....all this happened way before Perez...

    Kodak was involved in lots of things (maybe too many). See for example an article written last year by my friend Gary Pageau. ( http://theinfocircle.com/kodak-and-a...ony-of-defeat/ )

    Carl Gustin was the first person I ever heard mention 'Cloud' storage around 1994.

    Agree Pix. They couldn't move that ingenuity to market fast enough! The "culture" prevented say spinning off X breakthrough to be its own company....they could have been a majority shareholder but let it live its own....

    Kodak "should" have been all over Facebook/Instagram (like pre-Perez days)....but couldn't leverage that ingenuity with the lean-fast-bring-it-to-market culture that existed over the years at say Apple, etc.....I will have to find that post-hoc article that says they needed to divest their break throughs into spinnoffs....interesting article and food for thought....

    Here's one article about not moving fast enough transform that I belive Perez was handed...


    How Kodak's Leaders - And Others - Could Have Sensed Complacency

    http://www.forbes.com/sites/johnkott.../1322-1168-430

    Sage advice in the above for all of us who work! Let it be an inspiration and lets hope Perez can capitalize on that spirit and move ahead....
