An article on the Kodak website says that its restructuring will be completed in 2013. Here is the URL to keep an eye on while that takes place.

The company files for Chapter 11 and this guy still plans to continue on the course that has brought them no revenue. What's worse is he's willing to sell off the photographic foundation of the company in order to do it. George Eastman must be turning in his grave.

Very sad indeed. Kodak is iconic. Unfortunately, they failed to read the writing on the wall. For all of you that think that Super 8 is the wave of the future, think again.

They have only learnt from him.

Sounds they're rather like Xerox, the company that developed the icons and the mouse for computers and lifted by Apple and Microsoft, while Xerox just made photocopiers.

I'm not too sure about the printer business, but cheaper ink would be good, although someone pointed out to me it's cheaper to go the machine in the photo shop than to use your ink jet printer for photographic prints.
