Kodak On the Verge Of Bankruptcy
Innovate or die. That is (or should be) the motto for just about any company in today’s world where technology changes quickly. The 131 year old Kodak company moved too slowly to capitalize on the digital photography revolution and now find themselves desperate to sell off patents just to stay alive. Now the question becomes.. will the emergence of higher quality cameras within the iPhone and other mobile phones combined with social networks such as Instagram mean the end for some traditional camera companies? Probably not anytime soon, but it’s something to look for over the next decade and you have to believe that fewer are buying dedicated cameras.
