Agreeing to what sort of a digital marketplace is another question entirely. HP got bled from executives trying to "evolve" the company from a manufacturer into a brand. For a time, the only division generating a profit, propping up the rest of the company, was their mainframe divison. Not their printers, which were losing money hand-over-fist. And at the time the CEO was trying to kill off the mainframes.

Polaroid has now become a brand, and there are now many "Polaroid" products entering the market with the Polaroid logo on them. This may well be Kodak's fate. I hope not, but I just don't know. Their losses are shrinking, but they aren't anywhere near generating a profit.

I have been reading in the financial news that next year promises a slowdown. Not good for anybody, including Kodak.
