So... What happened? I never saw any Kodak that had some of the features they were mentioning ...
They had all those features, but the implementation was crap. Anyone who ever made the mistake of buying a Kodak EasyShare will relate - the software was a proprietary, buggy half-arsed hackjob and you still had to plug your camera into a computer (into a special docking device!) to get anything off it and shared. All the other manufacturers just implemented the USB-storage protocol: simpler, more open, more reliable, more portable and no stupid camera drivers required; you could actually download photos from your camera to a friend's computer!

Not to mention that the cameras were overpriced compared to their competition, even ignoring the EasyShare brokenness.
