Maybe. But this isn't where Kodak was supposed to be. Kodak was supposed to be a huge player on the internet with various apps, for example. Instagram comes to mind. That was supposed to be Kodak in 2012.

Kodak was supposed to be present in each and every mobile phone on the planet. Instead they prefered to giveaway free printers to consumers and they favored self-serve prints in pharamacies across the country. Some ugly plastic booths. Pathetic.
Leave the whole printing business to epson and concentrate on the real things happening on the planet. Kodak is a goner and instagram is a big player. Can you believe this??
Anyhow, that's it. the past can't be changed. But it's clear that Kodak's death was easily avoidable. The cause of this slow death is about a business philosophy. Perez had his obsolete philosophy and he flushed the whole company down the toilet. And he's still pushing the company where it doesn't belong. Have you seen Kodak's website lately? Pathetic, yes?
Kodak could have (still can, but won't) consolidate its legendary name by becoming an internet photo sharing player. Flickr should have been purchased by Kodak when it was time. If Kodak was well run, back in the day, Yahoo, Flickr, even Google would be owned by Kodak today. Perez lacked vision and is sitll lacking vision with these pathetic divisions.
Anyhow. Who am I, after all.
