Did you know Kodak developed the first digital camera?

where is Kodak today?

Kinda like a photographer and retoucher...you can be great (maybe even poor)... you still need to be good at marketing your product to the consumer to be profitable... right Nick?

Re: Did you know?

There was a documentary on the BBC this week about great business failures. Polaroid were featured. They were onboard very quickly with digital but underestimated both the market size and the competition. With huge factories and staff to support they couldn't accept a future without paper or chemicals in the mix and developed ever more fancy 'traditional' solutions. It's like they invented the wheel and couldn't see beyond making more chariots. Ultimately they lost their edge and the rest is history.
