Its funny how the government stepped in a number of times these past few years to protect institutions that were supposedly a core element the the U.S. economy, from financial institutions, to manufacturing companies, to big technology. But a company such as Kodak, which over its company lifetime has aided the U.S. in a number of huge technological developments and products, as well as employed a substantial work force for the last 100 years, is being left in the dust, having to piecemeal itself apart. Its quite a sad story thats been unfolding, but the truth is, unless kodak does some huge technological leap frogging to boost its revenue, along with some realignment of its marketing department, this only seems as though it will get worse.
