I'm not sure if that is HOTY material, but it should give Subby a little exposure and maybe some brownie points with the mods.

I think it's spelled "kodka."

Nostalgia.

I remember how Kodka tried to win consumers by offering modestly priced ink jet printer with a low cost ink system. They really didn't think it out all the way.

The few people who would actually save bought their printers, and lots of the ink, and saved money. The rest of the world bought HP because it was lower costs of entry and we'd occasionally go buy ink. Or sometimes a new printer, that's HP's problem.

I must admit I have a Kodak video camera somewhere around here. Good picture and a stereo microphone input, which combines with a sony lapel microphone to make amazingly good videos.

It's too bad too, because they were pretty good printers.

Every point and shoot camera I ever owned or recommended was a Kodak. They had an ergonomics and ease of use that couldn't be beat. Kinda slow start up times, and time between shots could've been better. But I always found they hit that sweet spot of price vs. functionality and I could recommend them to any demographic without worrying they couldn't use the damned thing because there were too many bells and or whistles.

But then the iPhone happened, and along with Android, torpedoed that entire market segment. Why carry a separate camera that shoots to a memory card, when I can carry a smaller device that can email the photos directly to someone, or post the photos to Facebook and tag people... and take phone calls... and txt... and HD video... and...

Don't get me started on "Achievement Based Compensation". Whoever thought of that never worked a day on a production floor.

Shouldn't have taken my Kodachrome away.

I read a bunch of their patents.  They all sucked.  Dumb, unmarketable ideas.

You could call this a developing story.

Ursula stole that from ACS when Xerox overpaid for the company. ABC is a complete joke considering how much true profit is in the XGS deals, they just don't share that with anyone who works for them.

Possibly - we'll see what develops.

Whoops, hadn't scrolled down before replying (stupid low res mobile screen). I keep forgetting that if a pun is that obvious here, it's already been made.

Worst tech support call center of any company I've ever had to call.
