    don't expect much !

    i asked a vp over the phone the same sort of thing several years ago.
    he told me they no plans on changing any aspect of their
    film - paper - chemistry business in the foreseeable future ... kind of thing
    and then 2 weeks later they announced to the world they would no longer
    be making black and white photo papers .

    oh well business is business ...

    not that i don't enjoy using their films, i don't put much faith into the idea
    that in the next few years they will make any of it anymore ...
    im empty, good luck

    It's part of the trend to label the most senior execs "C_O". Otherwise known as VP, sales.

    Sort of like grade inflation. I do love corporate speak though, "we have always believed in putting the customer first" and "reinforcing our commitment". So they create a new position?

    "Nothing will change" is corporatespeak for "this will be gone in six months or less." Invariably uttered in conjunction with corporate takeovers.

    But The Minister Of Politically Correctness, seems to disagree.

    Originally I posted that the gentleman was a Digital DoucheBag,
    then I corrected myself, DoucheBag is so overused.
    Nothing like being a bigot. Afraid that a new technology will show you up so you resort to name calling. Nice.

    I have to agree, and paintings are only colored oil on a rag attached to some wood.

    All seriousness aside, I've decided to delve into making digital negatives and leave the sacred cow along the wayside.

    As Chief Customer Officer, Oviedo’s primary responsibility will be making the customer central to the company’s delivery of products and services – from design to distribution. He will partner with all of Kodak’s business teams and Corporate Marketing to carry out his mission. From his base in Rochester, N.Y., he will oversee the company’s sales and customer operations in the Americas; Europe, Africa and Middle East Region.

    “Our sales increasingly come from the business-to-business marketplace, which is where I have spent the bulk of my career. I look forward to doing all I can to contribute to the continued success of Kodak’s digital transformation.”
    Well that's very good news, now we can rest assure that the company really likes us, you really like us! I felt so alone and sad but now I'm loved and cherished and feel loved again. Oh what a wonderful day, oh what a wonderful feeling to know that millions of miles of film will flow into my life and beyond. I'm almost speachless but I can't keep it in. Oh thank you Mr. Pres. Preres EI EI O. Mr. Chief Customer Digital Transformation Film Killer Oviedo, and it's i before e so it's certainly correct.

    Like the Pharaoh who erased the name of a previous Pharaoh and put his name on the monuments, I wish you luck on making a historical statement and striking the name of Kodak Film forever from the land and may no man speak the work "film" lest they be struck off the planet in a digital flame.

    Lastly I'm heading to the bathroom to vomit.

    As an aside, the 'rule' "i before e except after c" has more exceptions to it than words which obey it.
