My father worked for a division of Kodak for about 10 years after he retired with 30+ years from GTE. I have a Kodak flag tacked up on a wall in my garage (no shit, I really do!) and have a couple of hundred sheets and several hundred feet of Kodak 35mm film in my 'fridge. I've both loved and hated various Kodak products for over 30 years.Originally Posted by MattKing
Regardless of any of that, I still feel that Kodak's board is screwing the pooch. Like I said, Kodak isn't the only big company that messes up. Back in the early 1970's, my father led a design team at GTE that developed a huge, flat panel television plasma display. GTE Brass wasn't interested (though they did get the patents) saying "no one wants to hang a big TV on the wall". Shortly after, the Brass sold off Sylvania to Phillips and got out of the TV market. Had they run with the ball instead of dropping it, well... you get the picture.
