    Not Necessarily the News:
    Antonio Perez was spotted fleeing peasants armed with cameras, pitchforks, torches, rope, sub-machine guns and tripods with long spikey points at the end as Kodak was delisted from the NYSE and filed for bankruptcy. Kodak film, once the choice of the Devine, used for capturing many poignant moments of mankind's existance from creation, the discovery of fire, and that stupid dog next door shagging that gnome lawn ornament, has been on the decline since people figured out that they really don't want memories to last forever. The company will be reorganized into a yet another latte coffee seller, and then go into bankruptcy again because the resulting product tastes worst than Starbucks drinks.

    They do the rest after you push the button.

    Uh, which button? The one Ronald Reagan joked about pushing?

    Nicely written humor, sadly.

    $0.47 and still dropping.

    Oh Well.

    There does appear to be a silver lining, the end of the road for digital.
    No one wants the patents because digital is good enough for military, NASA and Hollywood already.
    Consumer cameras are finished with anyone having a camera in their cell phones.
    There is already more than enough stock photography to last forever.
    Newspaper are done and TV changed to HD some time ago.
    No more customer base for digital to expand.
