PsychoPhil: The Bestest: PsychoPhil: What - no Kodak?

They're a candidate for sure. Last year they stopped making cameras.. just earlier this week they announced they will no longer make printers (they will continue to make the ink cartridges and paper though). Not sure how many avenues of business they have left.

From one article:

Kodak's future is now pinned to the second piece of Mr. Perez's turnaround plan-selling printing equipment and services to companies, which largely centers around its Prosper Press digital printers.

Also:

The company is still working to scale up manufacturing of the giant, room-sized Prosper Presses sold by its commercial-printing business. It currently sells about two dozen a year. Kodak is considering outsourcing production of the machines or creating a joint venture with companies in Asia, the person said.

They're a goner. Who picks up the film (if anyone) and related stuff is beyond me.

I give Kodak maybe another year.


Kodak has one of the biggest image and tech gadget related patent portfolios in the world. Companies like Google, Apple, Samsung, etc are jealous of what Kodak has. They could literally mail it in forever and run a business off the patent residuals.

-RIM. This one's interesting. While I don't think they're doomed in 2013, I don't see them surviving much longer beyond that. One of two things can happen.. a larger player buys them out, or the Canadian gov't bails them out.


HP has said that it wants to get into the smartphone market, and has a history of making terrible acquisitions.

looks like Meg Whitman will be getting some RIM jobs soon.

/oh yes, I went there

The American Airlines brand needs to die. it has a reputation for... well, crap. I have always hated flying American. Everyone who works there seems so stressed out. US Airways should retain their name if they do buy AA's assets.

Avon will probably be bought out by a major retailer and become an exclusive in store brand. Their brand value is way too high to just die.

Hey, where will all those middle aged and elderly women buy clothes?

I can't believe Sears is still around. It's been hanging by a thread since the 1980s.
