Kodak announces new film

Discussion in 'Kodak' started by Michael Scarpitti, Jun 14, 2004.

  1. Rochester:

    Eastman Kodak has announced low-carb 35mm film.

    'Our customers have expressed a continuing interest in low-carb
    products. Eastman Kodak, always alert to market trends, is proud to
    announce four new low-carb films for the amateur.

    Our ever-alert Marketing Department has siezed upon this fad, and has
    advised our Product Design Department on direction the new products
    should follow.

    Low-Carb Kodacolor will be available in four 'flavors'.

    Why not?

    Last week there was an article in the local paper about a company
    selling low carb bottled water! I believe it's called "Aqua Lite".

  4. Does anyone know if Kodak's stamping the word "Digital" on their film
    products is having any effect on sales?

  5. Yes-next product by Kodak will be a digital, light film-thus film without
    film.Well done-rediscovered the wheel!

    I take it you are posting this with an analogue computer?

  7. You got this close, but not entirely correct. "Low carb" is so '70s. The new
    film is actually "Atkins-friendly", dontcha know.

    And if it is successful, Fuji will bring out a lower carb version.

    Probably an abacus and signal fires.

    Those are digital devices (discrete states). Analog computers comprise
    op-amps, some kinds of rotary calculators, slide rules...

    What are the chances that the new marketing strategy will include
    adding the: "no MSG added" or "100% natural" tags next?

    What's your reasoning behind that?
     
    Fil Ament, Jun 15, 2004

  13. A digital computer is a computing device with discrete states, with no
    meaning attached to the states in between them. On the abacus, each bead is
    either up or down. You don't put them 2/3 of the way up to represent a
    number 2/3 as large. As for signal fires, the fire is either there or
    not -- you can't expect the viewer, out in his boat, to judge the exact size
    of the fire and attach any meaning to it.

    An analog computer represents information by means of a continuum of states.
    For example, on a vinyl phonograph record, the groove can be any shape
    whatsoever, and the needle will attempt to track it and reproduce a sound
    wave. On a slide rule, you can use any position whatsoever; you can get 2/3
    of the way from one number to another by simply taking the position 2/3 of
    the way along the scale between them. (It's a logarithmic scale, so it
    won't be 2/3 of the linear distance; a minor detail.)

    Programmable computers as we know them are all digital. Electronic analog
    computing devices do exist, but they do not have software. They consist of
    operational amplifiers (op-amps), resistors, and capacitors, and are
    programmed by connecting the parts together in particular ways. In the past
    they were used to simulate other complex circuits and various mechanical
    systems, mainly to find out if the systems were stable.

    That is the definition of "analog" and "digital." I'm a computer scientist.
    They pay me to tell students about things like this.

  19. No, actually it's digital, as my cd player-the only digital appliances in my
    house.I use *analogue* whenever I can (record player, tape deck, 8 mm
    camera, film camera-of course, of course).

  20. No, actually it's a celeron with dial-up connection.The signal fires are
    unsuitable for communicating to people 10,000 miles away, and the abacus is
    also unsuitable for doing autocad drawings and playing Quake 3 arena.
