    That is truly outrageous, and is a good example of how different oriental thinking is to our occidental thinking, and the fact that they thought this slogan would sell their products in the U.S !, just as their government at the time thought that their pre-emptive strike on Pearl Harbour would cause the United States To surrender!

    Oh, come on... You don't really think that was an actual slogan, do you? PE was pulling your leg (or other parts of your anatomy).

    JL;

    It was a real slogan. I am not pulling anyones leg on this one! It was withdrawn with a lot of protest in the US. I used to have a copy of it on the wall in my office to keep me reminded of our competition!

    Not so much a slogan as a phrase that became part of the popular lexicon is the "Kodak moment." It seems I've known that all my life.

    Cheers,

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    "Kodak - Discontinuing your favorite products since digital"

    "Kodak - Refusing to offer anything better than the competition"

    "Kodak - Offering practically nothing unique of interest to the fine arts photographer"

    "Kodak - Slaves to photographic commercialism"

    "Kodak - How on earth have we stayed in business after royally botching the transition to digital and losing all of our business to Canon, Nikon, and Sandisk?"

    "Kodak - Surviving on brand recognition and the motion picture industry alone"

    "Kodak - We still exist"

    "Kodak - Hey! We're still here! Really!"

    "Kodak - PLEASE buy our stuff!"

    "Kodak - Going out of business sale! Wednesday morning only! Everything is for sale! Entire business must go! All offers considered!"

    Kevs,

    I am unaware that this is a maturity contest.

    I am aware that joking around, quite often in an opinionated manner, is generally allowed, however.
